Joint pains, especially knees - usually (not always) this comes from the wearing away of the cartilage in the joint over the years.
For years my husband had a lot of pain and weakness in his right knee, which got worse when we were packing up etc to leave France 2 years ago.
Our doctor referred him to the rheumatologist for an injection of hyaluronic acid ( not a cortisone injection which he'd already had.) I believe this helps to rebuild the knee cartilage.

TG it was successful.. He had just the one big injection, not a series of small ones.
We had to pay for part of it.

Thanks PF, I'll keep a note of that in case they get worse - it is the knees which seem to be weakening the most, otherwise we are reasonably fit. It's just hard to get up again if we bend or kneel down, and it's the same for both of us …! I try to do a fair bit of walking as I thought that would increase the flexibility but am not sure that is working.

Have a look at this report. ARUK (now renamed the most stupid ‘versus arthritis’) used to be a body I respected and did useful and reliable things like this
