    Thanks folk for all your good wishes & positivity! I have already been forced to pull out of my Stewarding duties at the North Wales International music festival which is currently taking place in my neck of the woods. I have always enjoyed music and something I miss and have missed this time round.
    Chris I have noted your suggestions re a good purchase for me. I trust Colin C has also seen that collection of Indiana Jones hats!!

    Nathaniel,
    I sympathise with your problem as I have had similar difficulties (cardiac problems and associated medication, together with a long-standing back problem). My family finally persuaded me to see a chiropractor - and I have found that his treatment has helped considerably. I can now go up and down stairs without difficulty and walking as a breeze. The chiropractor recopmmend that I apply Tiger Balm to my knees, which I have been doing, and I have found it helpful. If you have not considered this course of action then I suggest that you give it a try. Whatever you do, the very best of luck and a quick return to all the things which give you pleasure.

    Thanks Martin. I will certainly try Tiger Balm as I have heard of it's properties. Another Chiropractitioner recommended Weleda Massage Balm with Arnica. I am hoping to see my GP tomorrow and go in for a Cortisone injection to see if that helps before I try these balms. I am surprised how this came on so suddenly early last month as I went to the Gym regularly atleast once a week for one hour sessions- treadmill,cycling,rowing,backpush etc etc. I am presently applying Voltarol which has helped me a bit.

    Nathan I do hope that your knee issues ease off soon, like many others I have bad arthritis in my knees & hips along with spinal problems for which Ive had surgery. At present I'm having physio for knees & hips so hoping it will help.
    I have used arnica and it does ease the pain but physio said that if I try to strengthen the muscles around the joint it will help to support the knee.
    Good luck with whatever treatment you try and hope you will be fit enough to fulfil your photographic jobs.
