Hi there. I'm new and have been told I have arthritis in my foot, hands and one knee... I am unable to take anti inflamitary pain killers as I have a gastric issue and had been taking co codamol but now can only take codeine as these agrivate my liver function.
My pain is bad when I stop... Knee pain prevents me sleeping and hand pain is dredful in the morning and I can't grip anything. I'm 50 and really need to get this sorted as many years to go hopefully!
Can anyone recommend natural remedies or ideas to help please?
Thank you,
