The 50-Something Knee Revisited
Ok, I am probably heading to my doctor this week and bracing myself for a lecture about my weight, but I need to have my knee checked out. I have been taking Osteo-Whatever-B-Flex for about 3 weeks and I haven't noticed any change in my knee. Maybe it is arthritis?
I am also taking the Escape to another dealer so that I can make sure my seat adjustment is correct.
I don't have any constant pain, but it does feel stiff or sensitive at times when I go to put weight on it while walking. When I am on my bike, it can appear for one or two complete cycles of the crank, then it eases up. I worry because my bro-in-law neglected his knee for about 15 years while he worked overseas. Now, he has had surgery, but they say a replacement is his only option.
So, do any of you folks have luck with supplements such as Osteo Bi Flex? I know this is all "armchair" stuff, but I appreciate the input.
