I have pain in my knees. Started with heel pain. Now both heel and knee pain. I now feel pain here and there,like elbows, back pain sometimes wrist and fingers. I was advised to take an MRI.So I havetaken my right leg MRI. It shows, severe thinning of knee cartilage.bI am referred to an orthopedic.

Is there a way I can cure my knee without surgery? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you

    Hi Ann. I have been getting shots of hyaluronic acid yearly in my knees and it is pure magic. It puts the padding back where the cartllage is worn away. Ask your ortho. I was told over 10 years ago that I should have a knee replacement, and this has kept me walking and pain free. Also, you can relieve all of your pain a lot by taking something for the inflammation like Turmeric. Hop0e this helps.

      Hi Judy, thank you . I went to the orthopedic doctor today. I have to see him after 1 month.

      He took out the fluid from my knees and gave an injection (steroid) . He prescribed these medicines for me.

      1. celebrex 2. Ultracet 3. Artrodar 4. Uniren spray 5. Viartril-S .

      My knees hurt Judy. I am happy that you are a good prayer!

      Well Judy, you told me about the turmeric capsules. But I don't how good they are. The doctor asked me to reduce weight too. I am 67 now. Thinking of taking turmeric tea. I will try that maybe.

      Thanks Judy

    Sweet Ann, I will gladly pray for you and I am a good prayer! lol It sounds like you have a lot of inflammation which really is painful. Have you tried turmeric? If you can get the inflammation down, you can relieve a lot of pain and heal better. Look up turmeric capsules with a high content of curcumin. If you have a local health food store, they could probably guide you to the best one. It will make so much difference. Hugs

    Here is what I found when I researched it...If you want anti-inflammatory effects you need to get 500 to 1,000 milligrams of curcuminoids per day.” You need to look at the amount of curcumin and make sure it has a high content along with black pepper so it works well. I take 3 huge swallows of the fermented twice a day...much more than they say to take, but it really helps me. I know that too much can upset the stomach, and you should never take it if you are on blood thinners or coming up on having a surgery. If you have a really good health food store, they can probably advise. There is also a really good help line through Swanson where you can order online.

      Oh thank you so much Judy. Ok,do the capsules come mixed with pepper?

      What is the name of it? I live in Thailand.

      I appreciate your kind approach sister. God bless you abundantly.

    It is just Turmeric, and when you read the ingredients, look for a high content of curcumin as that is what helps with inflammation. It should also show some pepper or pepperine. Blessings back your way sister.

    Hi Ann

    you mention pain in lots of places including wrist and fingers. Have you considered the possibility it's Rheumatoid arthritis instead of osteo arthritis? You d need a referral to a rheumatologist to find out, but you have exactly the  symptoms I had. I say 'had' because immune suppressant drugs have worked for me with regard to this auto immune disease.  Hope you find some help
