    Wasp,why the fcuk don't you just go see a doctor?

    Researchers have today revealed the exact risk of having a heart attack or stroke from taking several common painkillers.
    The heart dangers of ibuprofen, celecoxib, mefenamic acid, diclofenac and naproxen - taken by millions worldwide to dampen pain - have been assessed.
    Taiwanese expertshave concluded that the five different tablets could all affect the heart within four weeks, but some are more dangerous than others.
    They assessed the odds of a major cardiovascular event for each of the popular painkillers, using data from 56,00 adults with hypertension - high blood pressure.
    They discovered, on average, one in 330 adults who have been taking ibuprofen will experience a heart attack or stroke within four weeks.
    However, the drug, costing as little as 2p a tablet and available in corner shops, was found to be three times less dangerous than celecoxib, which will lead to one in 105 adults experiencing a heart attack or stroke.

    Well the question was not about Pain Killers !!!!!

    The question was ' Where in Korat is best in order to see a doctor about my knee problems ?'

    So you're suggesting I do exactly what I had set out to do !!
    Unusually for Teakdoor the Thread got hijacked onto other subjects . I don't think that has ever happened before - but there y'go !!

    I just been to see a Orthopaedic Practioner , he had a portable laptop ultra sound scanner. Put some jelly on the scanner and ran it over my joints , left knee and hip. Next visit is for him to administer a steroid injection into the left knee.

    New adventure , I risked going out in the snow to visit a Chinese Acupuncture medicine man. I insisted that he concentrated on My neck. He plunged lots of needles into me, it was my first time but it was painless. It's seems to have worked already , nik noi.
    So I booked a return visit , next time the knee is also going to get the needle.
    ive nothing to lose

    My S-I-L do this acupuncture treatment with one-way press needles imported from China. It's working really wonderfully.

    I've been trying out the Turmeric and my joints feel a bit more betterer .

    But I'm looking a bit orange and spicey.

    Gentle stretching and yoga for the back.

    Keep taking the turmeric! Good for the all year round tan as well

They did take fluid from my knee however and had it tested. Turns out I have rheumatoid arthritis and am now on pills for the rest of my natural.

    Is the medicine still palliative? I was tested years ago, and mine confirmed as osteo arthritis.

    Whatever happens, Wasp, it is good for your overall health to include turmeric in your diet. Just find a level that doesn't disagree with your intestines.

    For a start, cancer spreads via cancer stem cells, and it has been shown that turmeric inhibits the spread. Just Google it...

    Yet again you are dispensing advice as if you were a professional clinician. You are not, and neither is google.

    OK but as I indicated before it is not about swimming. It is about getting the weight off your spine, so you can move and allow the muscles to heal them selves. That is unless you got the X-Ray and know it is skeletal.
    Only trying to pass on my experience, having been in traction, on muscle relaxants, off work for weeks not days etc.. Then did something stupid about five years later and i I couldn't stand upright. I found the pool to be therapeutic and in my case effective. I still get the odd twinge but for the most part have been good now for many, many years.

    I'll get my hat on this subject.

    I have arthritis in my right knee from an old rugby injury. I find when I'm in warm weather its fine but in a cold climate, i can hardly bend my leg.
    A physio will always tell you to build up your leg muscles around the knee to support and stabilize it.

    For over a year my left knee has been swollen and stiff and painful, ultra sound scans ( ultra sounds scanners can be purchased by anybody for home use, Google sales)
    show that the joint is fine.
    ive been attending Physiotherapist treatment for over a year, and it's done bugger all but burn a hole in my pocket at 35 per half hour.
    Compare that to my only two visits to a Chinese Acupuncture medicine man, who's just two treatments thus far has already reduced the pain and stiffness .
    Just 2 treatments. More booked ahead as it's the only thing that's worked thus far.
    last physio has booked me in for a steroid injection in knee.
    The Acupuncture craftsman has suggested that he can cure my knee before the appointment for steroids is needed.
    Bloody hope so, oh and the Chinese expert only costs 30 for ONE hour treatment .
    Bloody half the price of a Farang physio who's treatments have done bugger all good.

    OK ...... to finish this ........ I said I tried Celebrex and it did nothing for me .
    Well --- I was too hasty with that comment .

    That was after 4 days .
    On that fourth day I was still in extreme pain . On day 6 I got up and was in the shower before thinking " Hang on ! I got up without thinking about it and walked around in a normal way . " 6 days is phenomenal !! For me .

    In the past the shortest it took me was 2 weeks and mostly it has been 3 weeks . If I can get over this in 6 days it's brilliant .

    So - I withdraw the negative comment .

    And to LatinDancer ....... thank you .
