Both knees need to be replaced and I will have them done, one at a time, when I turn 65 and will be on Medicare!

Thank you Willowtreegirl, I was looking at excerise bikes but didn't find anything that good of a price. I was hoping to get something for my mom to encourage her to start with the rest of my little family. :)

so glad that so many are saying "move it"! I am not ready for this joint pain (especially in my knees) to sideline me completely. I'm going to start adding an evening walk to my usual morning walk. More is better - I get it.
Does anyone use an exercise machine to loose weight with less pain? I am moving to a place where I'll finally have space and was looking at some. I was having fun walking but began to get general joint pain.

Great advice. I suppose I knew that, but it must have been shoved to the back of my mind. I sometimes avoid too much because of the pain... time to get deliberate about it.

Move it or lose it! When my knee pain was worsening due to osteoarthritis, I started spinning classes twice a week. Now minimal pain for me!

Keep moving. I have that same thing. General joint pain all over. If you stop moving it gets worse! Use it or lose it.

I am hoping I will experience some relief from joint pain by losing weight. I only have 24 pounds to lose, but I am interested to know if there may be a link between weight and joint pain.
I know it can affect knees etc, but my joint pain is more systemic. Neck, fingers, wrists, hips, feet, elbows... I was tested for rheumatoid arthritis and thankfully I don't have RA. While that was good news, my joints did not get the memo.
