Begin with age: nearly 85...suddenly back gave out...Move next to medical opinion: stenosis, lots and lots of arthritis in (mostly) left thigh, leg, some also on right. Add to this: bursitis.
Swollen ankles--still checking on cause for this.
Question: hurts. the otc stuff does nothing as relief.
got pills for inflamation and that helped but may then move on to needle a few times pezr year (epidurnal) but am not going to get surgery since the cure rate not very promising.
acupuncture? chiropractic? and yesm, waiting for medical pot to become available in my state.
