John, I would strongly urge that you ask your health care provider for some prednisone. The pain is almost relieved within a day or so. My elderly Dad was prescribed it and felt relief from his severe joint pain within a day. Opioids do nothing for this type of pain and cause more harm than good.
John, we also suffer from severe joint pain and are very sympathetic towards your plight. I went the natural route of tart black cherry juice or supplements, turmeric and also topical Voltaren Gel which I believe is available in the UK over the counter. These are helpful, but the pain can be quite severe and a low dosage of prednisone which is a steroid was prescribed for the flare ups. This helps with inflammation and pain, but should only be used short term as there are side effects, as alas there are with nearly all medicines. Hope this info. is helpful and you find some relief.
John- May the Lord strengthen and protect you and your fellow laborers as you preach the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, and minister to the saints. Will be remembering you all in prayer. Godspeed and May Grace and Peace abound brother.
Sojourner, I indeed posted that in 2017, and still stand by my comment.My question to you is why you felt the need to repost one of my older posts on a thread that has nothing to do with the Grahamâs or the BGEA? My purpose on coming to the site was to give testimony of my Dadâs conversion out of Romanism and to encourage and strengthen those who have friends and loved ones still in Romeâs clutches. We saw a miracle in our family and I am praying that at least two brethren on here that I know for sure that has family still in RC ,will see that miracle in their family also.
I have posted this before but I felt after reading Doloresâ comment that a word in season was appropriate here. We witnessed to my RC parents for over 20 years and the only thing it seemed to do was drive them deeper into their RC religion. My Dad especially was quite angry with me and refused to speak of the things of the Lord.We continued in prayer and honored his wishes on the matter. Mom passed a few years ago and my Dadâs estranged sister came back in his life.She is also a Christian and lives in N .Ireland.With his new smart phone they started whatâs apping face to face nearly every day and she began witnessing to him and he began to soften read his bible and even started to ask us questions about Scripture. Long story short, the Lord called him out of his darkness and called him to himself. He has left the RCC and is in a sound church in his small community. He is 89 years old.NEVER give up on your loved ones and friends. All praise, glory and honor to the Lord, who saves sinners young and old, male and female. Hallelujah what a Savior.
Thanks for your feedback Dr. Tim.Do enjoy your humor also. Iâm wrong most of the time, not sometimes, but I rejoice in the Lord Jesus Christ and His glorious Gospel of Grace for such a sinner as myself. Hallelujah what a Saviour!
Maybe by Godâs grace we should all start with a group repentance towards one another, abide with the forum policies, and be a good witness concerning the Lord Jesus Christ and His Gospel that we all claim to believe. What saith thee all?

Hello dear brother, hope all is well.Please extend my well wishes to Dave, if you are still in touch. Blessings. *** Brother US, you were unjustly maligned and we have all been guilty of this sin on here.I myself have found a greater peace with God and my neighbor when I refrain from posting on SA. God Bless.

Thank you brother, all is good.
âPraise GOD from Whom all blessings flow; Praise Him all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host: Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.Amenâ.
Thank you Rodney. Quite surprising that only 4 brethren could stop by and praise GOD for His mercy and grace to one of His own, and crickets from the rest, but plenty of engaging in useless political rhetoric.
Thanks John. Would ask if upon remembrance you and anyone else who are so led would pray for my Dad. It will be a difficult transition for him to be in a Protestant fellowship after being at his RC parish for nearly 50 years...
John-I so appreciate the kind comment. Would like to take this opportunity to apologize for some of my previous remarks to you. Please forgive me, as I have also forgiven you and others for our ungracious and rude banter that is so unbecoming children of GOD. By His grace, I hope to respond in a more gracious fashion. Every blessing, brother.
