    Hi Hills31 and welcome.

    Would you care to share some more information about your condition and what if anything you are doing/taking to try and cope?

    If members know a bit more about you they might be able to offer up some more targeted advice or help.

    Thanks,

    jon

    I agree with @jonr . My gut feeling is to ask your GP or pharmacist. They can advise on what's suitable for you and any potential interactions.

    Hi Jon

    Thank you

    I am seeing the physio every 3weeks .

    I have been taking Zapain and it has helped with the pain.

    I know it will be a long term thing 🥲

    Take care
