Default If you have arthritis.......

Is it a stationary pain too?
I don't have time to make a doctors appointment so I have to rely on you guys for a diagnosis. TIA

Just start shitting your pants, you can make extra time that way. Then you can go see a Dr. I thought this was already mentioned.

Yes. It is stationary. And the less you move, the worse it gets.

Yes, and it can be irratated/flared up by changes in weather. I know whenever it will be changing by more than 20 degrees within 24 hours because my hips will ache like crazy if I don't move around alot.

Getting old sucks. Deal with it.
Take a hot shower, take an alive then get up and move.

The more you sit around the worse it hurts.

If you drive an automatic the knee has probably atrophyed from lack of use. Time to trade in for a stick :D

Age is not always a factor. I am entering my 11th year of treatment for anklyosing spondylitis, and rheumatoid arthritis, at 47. It was triggered by traumatic injury. My immune system does not know the difference between good tissue and bad, and has decided that the cartilage in my joints is bad, so it is eating it. The best medicine available today weakens the immune system. I have had mixed results with it.

Here is my Dad's Arthritis Testimony using Alfalfa Tablets.

If it works, Great, if not they are cheap and it wont hurt anything for trying.

Read on,...

Hey Darrin,

Yes, I'm still on alfalfa. A decade ago, I thought I was going to have to quit our business due to arthritis in my fingers. I would soak them in the hot wax vats before I could shape the candles. The affected knuckles were so sensitive it was painful if they were bumped. I do not think this is Rheumatoid (RA). I think it is Osteoarthritis (OA). I have no idea if Alfalfa is effective with RA.

About the time I starting getting the stiff, swollen, painful joints in my hands, my Dad-in-law was suffering with it in his shoulders and could not raise his arms over his head. His doc's were not much help and someone told him to start taking alfalfa tabs. He enjoyed complete relief and told me I should try it.

I went to Sams club and they did not carry it, so I asked the Pharmacist about it. He said Alfalfa is the best kept medical secret for arthritis. (I don't remember if he specified the type, RA, OA, or?) He offered to order it in for me, but said Walmart carries it. I have been taking 6 to 8 tablets ever since. I don't remember how long it took to get relief, but think it was a few weeks. If I got careless and did not take it for a few days, my knuckles would remind me, and I'd get back to taking them faithfully.

It is recommended to take 1 to 2 tab's 4 times a day. I knew I would not be organized enough for that, so I've always taken the 8 tabs once a day with wonderful results.

My swollen knuckles have returned to near normal size, but that took years.

2 years ago while recovering from back surgery, I quit my alfalfa regiment for over a month! Neither the pain, swelling, nor stiffness returned. I then made the statement to my wife that I didn't dare say for the previous 8 or so years, and that is that I think alfalfa has cured my arthritus!
Nevertheless, when I got back on my feet, I started the regiment again, because I didn't want to give it a chance, and have been totally pain free and have full flexibility and strength in both hands.

Wallmart no longer carries alfalfa, but I go to GNC now. Walmart was cheaper, but GNC is very inexpensive, and are easier to swallow if you have that problem. The bottle says: GNC Natural Brand Alfalfa 500mg 480 tablets bottle.

Hope that helps!

Dad

I have had hip problems since I was 22 after an unscheduled motorcycle dismount.

Occasionally my left hip will pop out of joint.

It probably still hurts but I'm so used to it now that I don't notice.

Had my left knee cap dislocated when I was 19. My leg went sideways at the kneecap. Yanked it down and despite the ripped the tendons in that leg I was good.

I really can not run any more or bike ride any long distances.

The bone is pushing against a nerve, if I twist my leg in the manner someone would twist there ankle I can dislocate it and down I go. That's not the bad part as it is simply a manner of lining everything back up. The bad part is the nerve and pain when it happens.

I can not really lay down for more then a few hours without getting up and moving around or it will start to bother me. I talked with a few doctors who pretty much told me I need major work to "fix" the problem with no guarantee it would not make things worse.

Frankly, I have had enough of those "you should be dead" or "if it hit you another 1/4" to the left you would be dead" that most family members never thought I would make it to 30.

My left leg is screwed up, my right arm has been crushed, everything still works and I keep moving.

Just ignore it, keep moving, and suck it up. Pills are for wussies. If you can manage to wean off them you will get use to the pain.

It may just be the seat and the position your sitting. Raise the seat up or sit on something and see if it helps.

Its the angle of the dangle. Like others mentioned move seat positions and what not. Your knee isn't liking where it is at when it hurts. If it os arthritis try glucosomine i am on it for my ankles and shoulders. It seems to be working pretty good. Rub some wd40 on ot that works as well, but Kim doesn't like the smell.
