Knees are really bad, both large toes also bad, all fingers hurt terribly and at least two on both hands are twisted considerably. Took aspirin,nsaids,and other over the counter pills for pain. I had received cortisone shots which helped but lasted only a brief time. Now, I had PRP injections in both knees which are suppose to be the here best thing. But, it is suppose to take months to work and it is only a month and a half and I do have some relief but it is more difficult to rise from a sitting position and it takes a few minutes before I can actually walk. I cannot handle feeling this way and missing out on everything. I am or was an active person and feel at sixty five my activities are now so limited. It gets to be very very depressing. I am just hoping this PRP injections will soon help but no guarantee.
