I need advice on how im feeling....
Im a 40 year old man, who generally is very active, for example I run, cycle and row 3 or 4 times a week. I have completed 2 tough mudders and have recently been training for my 3rd in June. Im a serving cop in a specialist dept, who carrys alot of equipment all the time.
Two years ago I had a viral illness that left me with viral arthritis. Since that time, I have discovered that both my hips are knackered, my right one scrapes off my pelvis two or three times a day. My knees and ankles crack and grind and ache, all the time. My shoulders crunch, when they move and two weeks ago I slipped a disc. Also, over the last few months I have noticed that its getting difficult/awkward to write.
I have been to the doc and they keep throwing pain killers at me and tell me "act my age".
Since I have been off work (2 wks) I have been aching all over along with fu like symptoms.
Is this normal for someone with OA?
Thank you for taking the time to read this, your advice would help me alot.
