    Right knee pain

    I am a woman of about 68 years, weighing about 90kg. I have this knee pain under my knee cap but there's no swollen.

Sometimes the pains can radiate inside the muscles of the lap when I am walking. I have not been using any NSAID or oral pain reliever but the external ones. I use Voltarené gel to massage but sometimes the pain still comes back. Please can....

    Level III A/C Joint Separation, etc.

    Hi all, Glad I found this place. I am suffering from a wicked pinched nerve in my neck that's giving me some side effect symptoms that I can't bear any more. I believe I got the pinched nerve because I do extremely physical work (raking with a grass rake for hours on end, leaf blowing, weed whacking, and chain saw work - I am a landscaper...) But this was never a problem in the past - granted I do understand I am getting old (59 in a week or so) but wanting to think it's because of a....

    Severe arthritis in knees and spinal stenosis

    I'm at my wits end with this arthritis pain. I have tried EVERYTHING!!! The steroid shots in my knees and back didn't work, the spinal cord stimulator has been in my back for 2 years without relief, the Instaflex pills didn't work after more than a month's supply, and my weight is bad. Part of the problem is I eat and I can't move much so I gain more weight. I don't mean to sound like a pity case but I don't know what else to do. My biggest fear is if I try to work through....

    Suspected Arthritis

    She started with back pain (in the lumbar spine area) in the past year or so. It wasn’t serious/long lasting. Every time my mom has the back pain, she put on a pain relief pad (those cheap kind you can get from Chinese pharmacies or Rite Aid. She used various kinds, and they seemed had worked in the past). Now the pain relief pad doesn’t help anymore. The back pain (again in the lumbar spine area) is getting worse, and even her knees are getting pain as well. We went to different doctors (3 internal....

    My post is about osteoarthritis for the past 40 years

    Like everything else there are no experts in osteoarthritis because we are all different,in what we do what we eat and also what we take . I have bad osteoarthritis in the back , neck , spine knees , shoulder and ankle . I got one knee replacement 7 years ago and it did not really help because it always interferes with ligaments or something else . I went too the clinic post 3 years and was told that my ankle would have to be operated on right away and to come in as soon as possible , i am still....
