Managing osteoarthritis pain
I have been diagnosed with early onset osteoarthritis about 2 years ago. I have seen a rheumatologist specialist who ruled that out and said my osteoarthritis is due to “wear and tear”. This didn’t help me!!
I don’t want to start being reliant on painkillers and paracetamol really doesn’t work for me. It is in my hip, knee and feet.
i was referred to a physiotherapist but this was only via video call and again that didn’t help me!
I’m only 46 and it is really impacting my standard of living. I can’t do things I used to be able to without being in pain. I even struggle walking the dog a short distance round the block without being in pain.
does anyone have any suggestions on treatment options as my GP is also not very helpful.
