This goes back to the pain in the feet. Mary suggested Vit C but I'm up to 2500 mg of C with dinner. Anyone ever get steroid shots in the knees? How di dit work out.

Steroid shots usually work for most people & is usually the first non invasive procedure they start with. You should know if they will work for you by the 2nd round of shot.
Best of luck

I had numerous steroid shots in my knee before it was replaced. They helped greatly with reducing swelling, which in turn reduces pain. The downside to the shots is that you don't want to get too many in the same joint as they will break down cartilage. It didn't matter after a while with me because my cartilage was already gone due to severe arthritis. There are various treatments for knee pain depending on what the problem is with yours. I've had quite a few of them over the years so feel free to ask questions! I hope this helps you:)
