    Osteoarthritis of back and knee

    I have osteoarthritis where one lumber vertebra slipped forward over another and the disc is bulging. I have osteo of the knee and doctor wants to do knee surgery. So far I've managed without surgery. I also have fibromyalgia. I am going to see another specialist in May for an injection in the lumbar region of the spine. My question is: I just don't have the umph to do my regular daily chores. I may get one or two done, but that's about it. I'm on thyroid med, low dose of high blood pressure med, cymbalta for fibro, and cholesterol med. My blood tests are good. I have motrin for pain. Do you find that the pain of osteoarthritis zaps your normal energy?
