    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.

    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....

    OA diagnosed but still not convinced

    Hello, Overnight my first finger top knuckle was swollen and had a bump on the side of the knuckle. I watched it for a few weeks and it changed in swelling, redness and pain. Some times it would be less and some times more. I thought that maybe I hit it and didn't notice. I finally made an appointment with Dr because it was not going away and starting to affect my job and the pain was getting worse. She came in and looked and said OA was the diagnosis. A few months earlier I had a blood test....

    I am 43. For around seven years I have had on and off, more often in the last 6 months, burst of pains in muscles and joints. I have had two positive ANA results.

    Knee arthritis

    I'm a 64 year old athletic woman, who was diagnosed with stage 4 arthritis in my knee. My left knee has a baker cyst - the knee swells often, and doesn't like any activity, including swimming and yoga! Would like some advice as to what activity works best in order to prevent more deterioration of the bone. Also, proven supplements that can help swelling (besides, turmeric and ginger).

    Can you have Ankylosing Spondylitis symptoms but NOT have AS?

    Hello! And thank you for checking out my post. Two months ago, I awoke with severe lower back pain. Enough to wake me up. Since then I’ve had some degree of back pain which either A) wakes me up around 5am or 6am or B) gives me pain when I get up. Stiffness in the morning. Since this began I’ve noticed these little bubbles on the side of my finger tips. I’ve had this before but they seem a bit more pronounced the last 2 months. Today they’re gone. But my skin looks older where they were. I’m only....
