I have osteo in the whole right side of my body. I can not take antiinflamatory drugs because I am alergic to all of them. The pain is so bad I cannot stand up of amorning without falling. I am told that the shots are not always successful and I am not going to take a chance of having a reaction to them.. Why is it that the Dr. withnot give us something for pain relief. I am a 53 year old woman taking care of my 1 yr.old and my 5 year old grandchildren and can not enjoy the pain getting in the floor to play with them,becauce of the pain. I am going to op for surgery and have knee replaced if nessecary I will not live in this pain.
