  • I've already had both knees operated on, am having physical therapy for an irritated tendon in my hand, and have fibromyalgia and osteopenia. It's almost impossible to wear without warm-water therapy, i.e., water aerobics in a heated pool. Massage helps and cuddling under a heated blanket. It's really important to keep moving! - 5/26/2012 1:40:51 PM
  • @HelenLocklear How can you tell the difference? - 8/14/2010 9:27:21 PM
  • While I can certainly agree that Fibromyalgia is debilitating (as I have it) it isn't really like the other types of arthritis in that it isn't degenerative.

    Just learning about all this myself. I had both hips replaced in October of 08 and it was entirely necessary. I had no cartilage left on either hip joint. Only got the diagnosis of OA 4 months previous to that.

    Fun and games. - 12/28/2009 8:52:27 PM

    I have Osteoarthritus In both knees I get shots from a bone specialist every 3 months or longer the shot is called...Xylocaine Depo Medrol. He doesn't believe in surgery unless the patient needs it, These help me tremendously for me!

  • Your article was very interesting and you had good information. I have the kind that affects my knees. i have worn out the cartilege in both of my knees. So I will need surgery to rebuild my knees, which I hope to get soon.Keep up the good work - 10/29/2008 2:20:55 PM

    The article was well presented .
    It was good to see that Fibromyalgia was included.
    It is such a debilitating disease..

  • there is one arthritis type missing from your article. It's the one I have which is arthritis due to having pysorisis ( skin condition). It would be helpful to have information about that. - 2/3/2008 1:28:47 PM
