Hi Folks I've just joined the forum and wondered if anyone had considered stem cell therapy which seems to help with inflammation help with joint pain. I've had RA for over 6 years now and I'm on Methotraxate and Naxproxen. I don't have any pain elsewhere except my extremely painful knees. I was was scheduled for a TKR surgery in March but as I am only 53 decided to try and put it off for a bit longer. Initially it was only my right knee but over the past month the left knee feels like it is going the same way. I don't understand why I have so much pain as I have been told that I have 4mm of cartilage in my knee so its not bone on bone, but the pain is excruciating. The painkillers don't touch it and now don't know which way to turn to get my life back and simply taking a step without pain. I have been practicing Yoga which is amazing at the time, but an hour or so later, the stiffness sets in and I can barely bend my knees. So fed up with this and will try anything that might relieve the pain so been looking into this stem cell therapy but its a bit of a minefield. Any advice would be appreciated. Lesley
