    Hi @kris34

    Welcome to Scope's community! It's great to have you here.  Just to get you started we have a How To Guide here, you can see all the latest posts here, jump in and get involved and don't worry we are a friendly bunch!  

    I can completely relate to the knee pain issue! Painkillers don't work well for me either. I use ice packs and lots of hot baths in an effort to ease the pain. 


    If you need anything, just let us know.

    Hi @kris34, I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. I just wanted to introduce you to @julzmama who is also relatively new to the community and has discussed quite a similar experience.

    Hi Kris, I read a lot of books, watch films and rest with my legs up most of the time. If I am in distress I go to bed with my legs up on two pillows because sometimes that is the only way I can cope. Music can help, relaxation, kindness to the self. I have chronic pain in both knees. Limit physical activity to only what is necessary
