    Hi Joanne1
    welcome to the community. I am sorry to hear you are having pain in your lower leg. I really couldn't say if a brace would help or not. I would suggest you go and see your GP. They would be able to provide you with some better pain medication and maybe refer you to a physiotherapist for some excises. You may find this section of the website about managing pain useful. https://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/living-with-arthritis/managing-pain
    There are lots of wonderful people here who will be able o offer you ideas and support. Let us know how you get on
    Best Wishes

    Hi Joanne1,

    I am sorry to hear about your lower leg pain, and that the Ibruprofen you have taken isn’t helping.

    I see that Sharon has posted a helpful reply last night and there is nothing further I can add in terms of information. If you would like to discuss any further questions about arthritis, or talk over how you are feeling, I hope you will call the Arthritis Care Helpline.

    Best wishes,
