    Knee Osteoarthiritis

    Hello, I am 16 years old and for the past few months I ve got knee pains. My knee clicks and becomes stiff, which suggests I have got osteoarthiritis. After exercise, my knee stiffens and I have to click it for more range of motion. For instance, when I go for a run, my knee becomes stiff and I have to bend it(click it). However, while doing leg exercises at the gym like squats my knee does not click. I was wondering, how can my cartilage run out at the age of 16 due to wear and tear. Especially....

    Crunching in lower spine/hip area

    I have osteoarthritis in my knees and hips, bursitis on one hip and have recently been diagnosed with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis. Apparently it's usually seen in older men - I am a 51 year old woman. Something that really concerns me though is when my hip "clunk" like they're moving back into place when I am going from standing to sitting or vice versa. This morning when I rolled over in bed to get up, I had crunching all across the lower part of my hips, especially....

    Living with RA

    Hi, I'm 29 years old and I have been living with RA for 4 years now. I know that this can be a disease that's hard for other people to understand. So I guess, I'm just here to let you guys know that if you ever need to talk, feel frustrated or whatever, I'm here for you. My situation is not as bad as it could be cause the medications keep the pain at a manageable level. But it's different for everybody. Also, I haven't seen many young men l like myself with this disease but....

    Shoulder pain for 8 years now...

    It started in 2011 when I was in the military. I was lifting things and did something to my shoulder and for a few weeks could hardly do anything without pain. When I returned, I was told it was an impingement and did PT. It never went away and I have been told several different things from that to a pinched nerve in my neck because I most likely sleep in a bad position. Roughly 3 months ago I had an x-ray for the first time. They said there was nothing structurally wrong, but had me do more physical....

    whats going on with my knee?

    I was and still am I guess overweight.... @ 5'8" I was 330 lbs. and when I would stand or walk for too long the outside( my right) of my right knee (only) would get numb and send shooting pain up and across my thigh gradually until it hit my groin area( specifically testes) and when that happened I was done.... it rarely happened and I thought perhaps I should get shoe inserts and that seemed to help, until I hired a trainer/nutritionist and joined a gym. Now I'm @ 270, and steadily....

    hand cramping and pain. Mostly during the night

    I have a couple ideas and a couple fears about what might be happening but i also don't know what kind of doctor i'm supposed to see about this. my symptoms are isolated to both of my hands. I find that they fall asleep very easily in what i can only think of as restricted circulation positions such as my hands on a mouse or my elbow firmly bent. This isn't the main issue however. When i'm sleeping most nights my hands will cramp sometimes even be in quite a lot of pain. When i first....
