    Hello.
    I just typed a reply and think I clicked cancel instead of submit...
    I have OA in my knees and stairs were a difficulty, especially coming down and walking downhill. You cod have a go at some strengthening exercises, there are some on this site:
    http://www.arthritisresearchuk.org/arthritis-information/conditions/osteoarthritis-of-the-knee/knee-pain-exercises.aspx

    Discus with your GP, is it severe enough for an appt of its own or could you
    Bring it up when you visit about something else?
    Gooduck

    Hi
    There are many support on the market, but really you need to build up your thigh muscles and around the knee..a support can stop you doing this..you might need an x ray to see what going on..

    I found yoga incredibly helpful....god for building up strength in leg muscles.
