Osteoarthritis of knees - how do i move on and I need to work?
Hi all. This is my first post. I have overdone the walking and running and a squat that I did in the past 2 weeks did not feel good.
To be honest I am pretty down with my condition as my knees are buckling and clicking and after 2 full days of using ice packs I did see some improvement but yesterday did not use any packs as I felt as though I was improving but now I feel like I am back to square one. The doctor has booked me in for an x-ray to check my knees. I am hoping that this flare up will go away soon as I need to get out working (I have 3 children at uni from this September and October and can't even help move them into accommodation).
I carry out surveys and have lots of jobs booked in but this means standing for hours on end. Is there a knee brace at least that would stop the buckling of the knee? Are there supplements that could help? Any help would be appreciated.
