Also should I be seeing a rheumatologist on a regular basis?

Dr. Mike Luggen says:

Topical Voltaren gel has been shown to be effective in short term studies of osteoarthritis. Under these circumstances, it appears to cause few side effects. Whether longer term administration will have the same risks and benefits is unclear. I think it is reasonable to try the gel for pain which has not relieved by acetaminophen under the direction of your physician with periodic monitoring for possible side effects.

I am 55 and suffering from osteoarthritis. My knees are painful while raising from the sitting posture and also difficult to sit freely. Is Mobic medication useful to treat osteoarthritis? also any exercise should I go for.

Yes these gels are extremely powerful in handling the pains and give a temporary relief from it. But as i have read from ninjaessay that for severe and chronic pains it's good to consult the physician in extreme conditions.
