I was diagnosed with advanced Arthritis in my lower back about 5 or so years ago. I was shocked to hear it was advanced as I was just in my early 40's when it started really bothering me. I did figure out I had arthritis in my fingers for years before but just didn't think it would ever spread or anthing like that. I went gluten free and the arthritis went away in my fingers but still bothers me in my back when I have to do lots of walking or lift anything heavy or do lots of bending over. I have managed to keep the inflamation out of it for a long time. I am just wondering if anyone in this forum has ever had a shot of cortozone or anything to eleviate the pain. I would love to get back into working out and walking lots but whenever I try it always turns into major pain in the sacrioliac joint area. (sorry for spelling errors) I have done muscle imbalance exercises and it has helped but I start exercising and it starts hurting all over again. I want to stay in shape but just can't figure out a way without pain. Can anyone give me any advice...appreciated. I try to stay away from pain killers as I get a bad reaction.
