Yup have osteoarthritis in both knees, bad enough it makes daily chores extremely difficult. I have tried the supplements and no they did not help me. I have done Synvisc and cortisone. The Synvisc worked great but quit working after a couple years and I had to have them every 6 months for them to work. The Cortisone works great but only last 3 months ish BUT can help contribute to the degeneration of your knees... both are very expensive to have done, luckily at the time I had good insurance that paid for it.. now though.. I have no insurance and cant afford it. So i have to deal with the pain.. which has made me not want to do anything and I have gained considerable weight because of it.
