Hi I've had heberdens nodules starting to appear in my fingers since I was 30 yo and progressively it just got worse. Both my hands are affected and it's painful especially my fingers on my left hand. I've never took any painkillers. A year ago I had a baby at the age of 39 yo and that's when the pain flare up in my fingers and also started for the 1st time in my hips! I know I have OA in the hips too and it's just so painful but I know it will only gets worse.
I'm now taking glucosamine and use a voltarol cream on those days when it's too much pain to cope with.
what I would like to ask is anyone started this early having OA and what medications you use to deal with pain. I couldn't take NSAIDs because had my gallbladder removed and now have very sensitive stomach.
