I am 74 and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees 12 months ago. I am doing my physio religiously but cant really understand my condition. Sometimes I almost forget it is there but othertimes it is really painful, especial at night. I dont know what causes these flare ups so dont know how to prevent them. I take glucosamine and tumeric but am not on medication, only pain relief when needed. A friend recommended massaging with CBD oil. Anyone know if this helps?
