Ok, let's start by saying I'm pushing 69, 6'3", weigh almost 300 pounds, and have arthritis pretty bad in both knees.
I can't stand very long or walk very far or do much physical activity without my knees becoming so painful that I start to limp badly and finally just have to quit. Sometimes I even have to hit the therapy spa or spray hot water from the shower on my knees to get relief. Heat seems to work better than ice. Hot/Cold patches don't help much.
And now it is starting to cause problems with sleep.
Because of my heart attack I can't take anti-inflammatory medicine, so I'm limited to Tylenol. It helps but not much. Plus I'm worried that taking it might cause even more problems. (A friend died from taking too much Tylenol)
So here's my question: have any of you used any of the other non-medical products (natural stuff like glucosamine) to help with knee and joint pain due to arthritis? Does it work?
I would appreciate any information or experiences, positive or negative, you may have had.
