I understand that OA is typically caused by the wearing out of the joint and is therefore common in the elderly. Well I've developed OA in so many joints that I'm starting to wonder if something is causing my joints to wear out quickly.
2 years ago I only had OA in my back and in my thumbs. Now OA is effecting several joints in several fingers on both hands, my knees and my neck. And my thumbs and back are 10 times worse then they were.
I am a 57 yo female and I was on long term prednisone which I am no longer taking. It caused osteoporosis and I broke 8 bones in 6 months last year. I am suspecting it might also be the culprit for causing all my joints to fail. 9
