Welcome from the Oregon Coast!! I live on the Pacific Ocean about half way down the USA
on the map. We are a small city of 30,000 and depend on fishing, crabbing, timber and tourism to survive.
I use Sombra and Icy Blue, which are pain creams, and really help my bone on bone knees and my knuckles to keep moving and busy. I take Tylenol Arthritis and it helps me a lot. I have had SYNVISC-ONE gel shots in my knee to give it a cushion and I highly recommend it. It stops the pain for 6 - 12 months a shot and helps me be more active. I am putting off knee replacement as long as I can.
I had back surgery a year ago and they fused L3, L4 and L5 and that stopped the numbness in my left hip and leg. My spine was being crushed and I did not know it.
This is a great site to ask questions and share what you know and do as well and just meet some great folks!! Make it a great day of blessings!! Marianne
