Hello Doc: I am a 70 year old man in good health (no smoking and drinking). But I have consumed too many sweets/soda over the years. Over a year ago I began to experience on and off pain in my ankle. What is the treatment for this pain? I just began taking Glucosamine hcl and it appears to be working. Anything better out there?
