Chronic Arthritis Knee pain

If anyone has any hints about how to cope wth the excruciating pain in my knee which was originally a torn tendon but now almost 2 years later has been diagnosed as Arthritis. (I have always had a very high pain threshold so am really struggling with this pain. I am not able to take anti-inflamatory drugs due to my lack of kidney function but I do have to say that I have not had a single full night sleep in all of this time, every time I turn or move in bed the pain from my knee wakens me. Usually upwards of 6 times per night.I have tried all of the joint care pills and potions thet I can think of and some more, I struggle to walk and do basic housework. It is really difficult to belive that 2 years ago prior to slipping on wet leaves on the pavement I was active and could run without any problem. I do still take Turmeric Capsules along with chelated manganese but am getting desperate now, the GP says there is nothing that can be done and at my age a knee is a long way off and i just need to cope with it.

Re: Chronic Arthritis Knee pain

Hi, I bought a product called Knee ease which is supposed to help. I must admit, I haven't used it because I don't know where it is! It's worth investigating. I find drinking apple cider vinegar (diluted) helps with arthritis and drinking Aloe Vera helps with a variety of ailments, including pain. I hope someone will benefit from this information.

Re: Chronic Arthritis Knee pain

I don't have arthritis, but can only imagine the pain it brings. I think it can be managed: but not cured. I do hope everyone on here gets the treatment they need. I can't comment any further because I know so little about arthritis. But - I will say - the TalkingHealth post above has very useful information. If you're suffering from the condition - or know someone who is - then do click on their link. Information is power. Again, though, I am not expert when it comes to arthritis, but I do know how it feels to suffer aches and pains.
