...from my knees for god's sake. Over the last two weeks .. and it's getting louder (and more painful). Any ideas, anyone?

Cod liver oil, taken daily over the next 2 or 3 weeks to see if it lubricates your joints. Don't eat lettuce, it is known to aggravate arthritic pain.

If it's a suddrn and painful onset, see your doctor NOW

Easy, why NOW? I've had a hard-to-swallow thing in my throght, plus back/shoulder pain for about 3 weeks now. Do you think it's something spooky?

Only because any sudden change needs to be looked at fairly quickly, whereas a gradual change in joints is usually just down to routine wear and tear. Don't panic, but do ask your dr.

carla, also recommend cod liver oil or fish oil, and glucosamine sulphate, ask about it in a good health store with experienced staff.

Glucosamine is good if you have osteoarthritis (wear and tear arthritis) but you need to check this out with your GP.
