Unfortunately I abused my pain meds and so I came clean to doctor and she said she would not rx anymore! That's rightly due me!
I have a tens unit and I can wear that sometimes. Unfortunately, I cannot wear it all the time on my knees because it causes them sometimes to swell. I use a lot of ice and am trying to keep up with p.t.
It's been raining and last weekend I took my friend and her family up to mountains and played with kids. that's taken a toll on me. For as heavy as I am and the activities I did have me still hurting a lot.
I have palletofemoral and chrondomalacia as well as chronic tendonitis. My back is weak and I'm doing exercise for that too. I'm on a weight plan and taking metformin for almost prediabetic by 1 point on AIC.
This has been such a journey as I had surgery at 13 to keep my kneecaps in place. I never know what to do with these stupid body parts. I have problems from a dislocated shoulder a couple years ago as well. Frustrating.
If you can add anything for help.....Or just some encouragement I would greatly appreciate it. I'm also thinking of acupuncture.View Thread
