well the results so far and future plans? - have taken two pks of arnika so far and IMO are not cheap - at one point I thought they were having good effect but this did not last However there are many confounding factors - one I am taking multiple and varying other tabs that may interact in non- efficacious ways and which included osteopanadol - and two recently more in desperation I started taking simple paracetamol which has seemed to ease the pain more effectively - however as stated previously the removal of all pain is not necessarily a useful technique as there is of course still underlying tissue damage that continues to repair itself.

I think on reflection it may be inappropriate to mix the two methods of treatment ie homeopathy and conventional medicine as they do seem to be juxtaposed.

however many thanks for all suggestions - well at least those of a more serious nature!

I am now walking unaided but with a slight limp - the discomfort is easing and as long as I do not rotate my knee joint all is well hat

second stage engaged:

4 hrly applications of the true and tried Tiger Balm  [now there's a homeopathic medicine if ever i saw one!] and 2X paracetamol - all pain significantly diminished as long as I keep walking in a straight line! sweep  light housework permitted in periodic spasms!

I have a serious question for you, Malcolm.

Have you ever tried homeopathy?

I shall take no answer as "No".

Yes about thirty five years ago when living in Blackpool I had problems with aching in my left leg, my doctor at the time, who's name was Priestly, could not diagnose the problem, he sent me off to a Chemist in Lytham with a private prescription for a Homeopathic remedy which I dutifully took as directed, needless to say it was a total waste of time and money.
I called the Doctors Surgery for another appointment and was told that Dr Priestly no longer worked at the practice.
My new doctor prescribed NSAIDS (Sodium Diclofenac ) and the leg started to improve.
I hope this answers your question.

Several years ago,in an effort to get out of the rat race,we opened a home brew shop. After a while,to boot income we started to stock health foods,and some homeopathic remedies. Many who came into the shop swore by them. We tried one or two but NEVER found them to be effective.

What it tells me is that the Homeopath  had not prescribed the correct remedy.

Conventional drugs are "multi purpose" items whereas a homeopathic remedy has a much smaller  clientel, and hence needs a much more careful diagnosis of the problem and selection of the remedy.

well the third way mark perhaps according to the quack quark and I was still having too much pain on joint movement - the original doc wouldn't give me anything strong so I finally consulted our friendly voodoo chemist from darkest efrica and she recommended a bed of the strongest OTH pain relief 'pharmacist choice - a mix of codeine 10mg pluse 500mg paracetamol with an overlay of ibuprofen to reduce inflammation - plus a leg and knee joint rub of tiger balm oil and that's doing the trick.

I was optimistic about the arnika but when you are in so much pain you need instant cure and it just didn't do it quick enough. Of course the tissue healing will take months. friend of mine had a ankle joint damaged in similar fashion and it's taken 6 mths with maybe a further 6. still at least I can still walk and more importantly drive!

I imagine the Arnica failed to work because, being in Australia, you are upside down and its goodness would run towards your head - leaving your knee bereft of any efficacious treatment.
