Hello, I have recently been diagnosed (through an X ray) with OA in both hips, but particularly in the left - which I agree, plus some dengeneration in the small of my back. I do agree with all the letters I have read so far, doctors just say the words without meaning, hand out the painfillers and let you get on with it. I am 66 yrs old (but don't write me off) and have enjoyed yoga, walking, swimming etc. up to about 4 months ago. I find constant pain depressing, perhaps I'm not used to it, and feel frustrated no being able to do what I once could. As an easy option, I am now on Napraxen (with a stomach settler) taken twice a day, which helps, but I still find I suffer with sciatica ache/pain during the night, bad enough to interrupt sleeping. Intially I had groin and stomach pain, which I would never have associated with OA of the hip. Any help would help. I am more than interested in a more natural method of pain relief and general improvement of my present situation. I have been looking into Orthomol, has anyone tried this? Also I am taking Naproxen sulphate 550 mg, any thoughts on this or an alternative?
