    Joint Pain (feet,knees, hands)

    Please someone help. In November I started waking up with locked knees and pain in both feet when I applied pressure. I addressed it to my doctor and he ran blood work to check for arthritis but everything came back normal. Over time it became worse and I started getting pains in my wrist and fingers. My doctor then referred me to a hand specialist for steroid injections. This did not help. Everyday it has worsened and I can hardly walk and use my right hand. I am only 39 and do not do physical labor....

    Hip Replacement

    I had a total hip replacement about four weeks ago and the surgery went well but it is the post surgery that is so hard. I still have alot of pain and swelling and walking is difficult. I may be in to much of a hurry or to hard on myself because I think I should be walking without the help of a cane.

    Anyone have arthritis on the "sit bone" in your butt cheek?

    I have arthritis and spurs on the "sit bone" inside of my left butt cheek. I am confined to a wheelchair and can no longer sit up all day long. I have to lay down about 16 hours a day. Does anyone else have this problem? I sit on two 3" cushions when I am sitting up but it still hurts. Just wondering if anyone has found a better solution.

    Advice needed for new hip replacement "requirements"

    I am having a total hip replacement in a few weeks. The Doctors & hospital are all saying I need to go home 2 nights after surgery. I live alone. How in the heck can they expect people to go home and take care of themselves, plus drive themselves to P.T. & Dr. only a few days after surgery??? I could use advice or how others have dealt with these "new" regulations. I have been fighting for at least a few days of transitional care after surgery, but here are no guarantees. ---and....

    Living with arthritis knee pain

    For the past year I have dealt with pain in my right knee. Doctors have diagnosed it as severe arthritis. I have tried physical therapy, cortisone injection and gel injection. They only provide temporary relief. Now I am experiencing pain in my left knee along with pain in my hip. It's very sad for those that have to suffer and live with arthritis to be told by insurance companies that we can't have replacement knee surgery until all other treatments have been attempted. In the meantime I....
