Pain in knees

Today has been OK but as soon as I try to relax the pain increases. Had meds and then hot bath ( kept falling asleep in there). Had a quick sleep then woke 1.5hts later.

KitKat, have you tried using ice &/or hear, and elevating your legs slightly? I can't really use ice packs, but i have rice filled I've socks and store bought gel bead wraps, all which can be frozen or microwaved. Do you have any pain ointments you could use? I have voltaren gel but it's a prescription. Before that I used aspercreme, and tried several other OTC ointments. I've also written compression support sleeves for the knee joints. Those no longer help with the increase OA in the joints. I hope & pray you can find something to help relieve some of your pain. Hugs!!🙂💕🙏🌼
