I am in constant pain and seem to have creeping osteoarthritis.
The arthritis started in the thumb joints and then it went to my knees.
I have now had two new knee joints and am pain free there but my shoulders have developed osteoarthritis and this hinders movement so much. I am intolerant to opiates and so am restricted to the pain killers I can take. I tried Gabapentin and I found no pain relief with this. I go to a Medical Herbalist for regular massages which helps and take regular exercise. The recent pandemic has reduced the amount of exercise I can take although I have managed to walk daily.
I try hard to exercise my shoulder joints but this is almost impossible due to the pain and the situation is almost crippling. Is there anything else that I can do to manage this situation.
