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!

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.

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!

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.
