Hello,I am starting to feel my osteoarthritis more and more each day.I have had it for over 20 years.It never really affected my daily
living much, accept an occasional flare up in the knee or lower
spine.Now it seems the flood gates have opened ha ha to shoulder,cervical and lower spine,knees, hands and feet.Alot of
stiffness,aches and pain.Especially to the left knee(lots of crepitus and stiffness) and lower back.I am walking differently now due
to the pain in knee,which is hard on the back.I am open to any
suggestions for how to live like this each day such as assisted
devices to heating pads,things like that.I already am on medication such as voltaren gel,pain meds and light exercise.
How do you battle the low moods in knowing this isn't going to
get better? I am in my early 50's so would like to still be as active
as possible and enjoy life.Thanks to all who listen
