    might sound daft but I've found aromatherapy can work with this sort of thing.

    I'll try owt! In fact after browsing tinternet I've ordered essential ginger oil to rub in my ankles, apparently it's very soothing , worth a punt. Still will have to go to docs to see if there is arthritis though

    James, have you been referred to a physiotherapist yet? Perhaps, in addition to the painkillers you are taking, the physio can give you some treatment and exercises to help mitigate your pronation.

    I have seen two physio's, and was told I needed a biomechanics podiatrist, the podiatrist is treating the pronation but apparently physio or rehabilitation as he refers to it can't begin until he sees progress or not, seems a bit trial and error I've given up on oral pain killers, did diddly

    My Wife had Arthritis in a knee and tried everything including GP prescribed medication and nothing helped much. As to gels, they did absolutely nothing.

    From this time of year till mid Spring when it gets warmer and sunnier, I ache from head to toe - literally everything hurts. Yet when I go into the Sun, by having a break abroad, all the pains go within an hour or two. We just had 5 days in Tenerife and all the pains disappeared. I haven't taken a painkiller for two weeks now but will be forced to do so soon. What's that all about ?
