I have studied your case history and have full sympathy with you. Having so many surgeries and so many diseases is a big stress itself. I will try my best to help you in knee, back and neck pain.

1. Avoid squatting and sitting cross-legged

For neck pain, I would recommend you to wear neck collar. You can also use muscle relaxant like myoril or myospaz. Diclofenac ointment can also be applied.

For back pain, avoid bending forward and lifting heavy weight. Lumbosacral belt is helpful. Hot water fomentation also relieve pain.
