I have an appointment with the rheumatologist today. I have widespread joint pain and I need to figure out what's going on. Feet (toes), fingers, elbows and jaw. It so sucks to grow old...
UPDATE: I do indeed have OA of fingers, feet and now my neck. (who knew? My neck doesn't bother me!!)
Interestingly, the doc told me to keep on doing all that I do. Keep lifting weights, hiking, skiing, climbing, etc. She told me that the more muscle I build around the joints, the more stable my joints will be.
No cures for OA, just pain management.
