    OA shoes?

    I am 20 years old and was recently diagnosed with early osteoarthritis in my big toes. Does anyone have any shoe suggestions? I have Oofos flip flops that have nice arches but I need something for walking around campus all day. And I was wondering if Chacos would be any good.

    ankle joint inflammation..

    I wasn’t sure what category to ask this question under so I chose all I could for some answers. I’m 16 years old and I have seen three doctors about my left ankle (only one affected).

But while at the pharmacy trying to get the prescriptions filled I found out that my insurance had dropped me. This put a hold on it all for almost 2 months while I had....

    Arthroscopic Partial Meniscus Removal

    Dear Doctors, I've had an old knee injury from hyperextending and crushing part of my meniscus when I was 18 playing basketball. I never got surgery, only physio. Over the last 14 years or so, I've been able to largely function by doing lots of exercise, stretching, and could function at a high level in basketball. As I've gotten older and less active, I've noticed more knee clicking and irritation only when I play sports, or on intense hikes Last month I went for an MRI under surgeons....

    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.
