    Hi all
    I started having osteoarthritis type attack. My knees are in problem. I am in great pain when I try to sit down,sit up or climb stairs.I am quite scared as I have noone to take care of me and don't have much time and energy to search for treatment options. I can not exercise,have some massage therapy regularly which did not prevent this from happening. I can not use prescription medication as I am sensitive to drugs.Md said there was cartilage problem and also some calcification at knees.Anyone have this problem?How do you handle it? I guess I will have to use joint support supplements. Would glucosamine help?Which type is better?Hcl,sulfate or n-acetyl?Do I need to take chondroitin? MSM?Would you think this might be related to gut problems?Food intolerances?Any help will be highly appreciated?
