I have had arthritis since 20 years of age, but in the last two years it has become a major problem. I take panadol osteo and fish oil, but the panadol is not doing anything. The arthritis is creeping into all my joints and I am having trouble functioning. Strangely enough out summer last year, a very hot one, made it so much worse and I am not looking forward to another one this year. I was wonderfing what other things I could take for the pain. My Dr doesn't seem to be very receptive in this case. I cannot take anti inflammatories as they upset my gut, and being on a pension can't afford glucosamine. Any one got any ideas PLEASE. My back , neck and shoulders are the worst, but it is in every joint except my knees. Would be grateful for some suggestions. Thanks.
