    New to RA, need advice!

    About 2 1/2 weeks ago I woke up with both of my hands swollen and throbbing with pain in the joints and wrists. It fades a bit by noontime but every night around 3 am it all returns with a vengeance only now it's creeped up into my elbows and shoulders. I'm searching for advice on how to cope with this. How long do your flares last and how often do you get them? What do you do to help? This is so scary and depressing....... Do you take ibuprofen? Have you tried moringa yet? My wrists are....

    My Story, Hello & Advice Welcome

    In 2011 I started noticing a soreness in my right shoulder from time to time.

Anywho, shortly after i had a flu like feeling that lasted for almost two weeks. When it came back the next time I went to my primary care and told him of both. His first statement was that they weren't related. The shoulder was a suspected....

    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....

I am a 52 year old male, I have stopped drinking and I am taking medication as prescribed but I can hardly get in and out of bed and after brief respites after rest my mobility is limited. Trying to use crutches but now both....
