hi i am sorry your knees are so bad i know how you feel,
i have problems with my knees and ra that causes the same problems.
i take tramadol and co-codamol when needed so see your doctor and ask for something stronger.

you could also try hot and cold therapy that sometimes works for me.

also have you had any help from occupational therapy cause they helped e with another stair rail, over the bath seat to help me shower and others.

hope this helps
