    trouble walking

    My 73 yo brother has trouble walking. It takes him awhile before he can get out of bed. He barely goes anywhere because he has such a bad time walking; which means that he does not go to family functions nor has he been able to take a trip to see his 97 yr old mother who is in failing health. The doctors can not tell him why; tho I do not know the medical details could this be shrinking tendons, arthritis, vitamin/mineral deficiency or ? If anyone has any info I would be extremely appreciative. Thank....

    Hip and Knee Replacement

    I have seen an orthopedic clinician who would like to refer me for the above procedures. The only thing is, I have never had my knee x rayed, and the pain I get in the lower spine area is not in the groin where the hip is, but on the outer area of my thigh where the pelvis is. I would like more investigation before committing myself. I wondered how I would be best doing this, and whether an MRI may be available

    Exercising with osteoarthritis

    I saw an orthopedist because of pain and swelling in both knees 2 years ago. He said I need total knee replacements. I am 75 and do not want to undergo surgery so I curtailed hiking and aerobics which had been causing pain, I lost some weight and ate more foods recommended by the Arthritis Org. I have been able to manage the pain but worry that I am too sedentary and may be setting myself up for other health problems. I have started riding a stationary bike, working up to 30 minutes a day but wonder....

    What does osteoarthritis in the knees feel like?

    I’m concerned I’m developing OA in my knees. 1 knee has been hurting intermittently for a year. The other just a few days. The last few days they have really bothered me. It mainly hurts on the inner part of the knee. If I don’t move for awhile they start aching really bad. They feel better when I keep them moving unless I’m doing high resistance excercise. For example I will up the resistance on my bike and ride up and down a hill. When I stand on the bike during this they hurt. Sitting With my....

    Can I still have Arthritis? I’m at my wits end with all of this stress

    Main question at the bottom, sorry I’m a young adult who has experienced at least 2-3 years of pain in my body (mostly the joints). I have been to the doctor several times seeking resolve but to no avail. The pain gets worse with every week and I don’t see an end in sight. I’ve had several tests done. I tested negative for arthritis but my mother still has the notion I have it. Can I still have arthritis but test negative from a blood test? The pain is making it harder to do things I could do in....
