Hi USAF, the joys of competing body parts. If you ask your primary, they can email some stretches to help with spasms. No appt needed.

I too feel like a young person in an old personís body. Having a baby as a healthy 43 year old, I could never imagined my play time on the floor would be limited.

Hello.

I recently joined this team as I have severe osteoarthritis in my left knee. I have osteoarthritis in most of my joints but my left knee is where I currently have the most pain. I'm currently waiting for my first cortisone shot to see if it helps.

I normally love exercising especially hiking, walking, kickboxing, dancing, strength training and swimming. However, I haven't exercised in a month due to the knee pain. I also have shoulder pain most of the time, too so I haven't even been able to do any upper body weight training either.

Besides, osteoartritis, I also have rheumatoid autoimmune (RA) disease, costochondritis (inflammation of the ribcage), tendonitis, bursitis and tinnitus.

Currently, I'm using medical marijuana in capsules and as a topical for all of my pain. I take 3 capsules every 4 hours and use topical in between as needed.

I also take Amitrypilene for my costocondritis and Xeljanz for my RA.

I've been putting an ice pack on my knee once or twice a day and trying to stay off it while still getting some chores done.

I'm 61 years old and retired a year ago. I'm married with no kids and no pets by choice.

I enjoy reading mysteries and YA, knitting, listening to music and playing cards.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.



My name is Joanna not Joanne, please and thank you.

I am 67 getting my life back, eating healthy, working out on stationary bicycle, getting stronger, getting smarter, learning every day.

To Margie, I had lumbar problems and went to acupuncture and acupressure. That helped tremendously. Later I went to physical therapist. That helped, too. Losing 54 pounds, and exercising through the pain is getting me stronger and stronger, and is the best help of all. I hardly notice the lumbar problem at all anymore. Here are some exercises for beginner lumbar work:- https://www.spine-health.com/wellness/exer

emoticon My name is Jineane and I live in Canada. I am 67, single, no kids, but live with one old cat (18) and one very noisy love bird. I have had both knees replaced about 7 years ago but have arthritis in my hands, right hip, and lower back which limits my mobility. For the past 12 1/2 years I was care giver to my 100 year old mother, who passed away this past August. I am an emotional eater so since then I have gained about 15 extra pounds which does not help with my mobility or my pain. So I am looking for support and help to get refocused and back on track.

Hi, I haven't been having much trouble with my arthritis lately but found out from my bone density that my back is worse from last test and down the road may have to have something done. Hip is same as before. I won't see my doctor until March so will find out more then.

My primary doctor is an internal / endocrinologist. Don't know how much he would know on the subject.

I'm 71, married, living in Florida, no kids or pets.

Hi, I am 63 years old with RA and OA. Grandmother to 3. I have trouble with pain in my hands, knees, neck and lower back for the most part. Just received shots in both knees yesterday (only lasted 3 months this time) so they should feel okay in the next day or so! I look forward to participating in the group to help me stay motivated in weight loss and fitness goals.

I am Celia and I badly need arthritis support. I developed severe knee paid and had trouble walking when I was 55. Through physical therapy and life style adjustments my OA is managable, However, I have had to change what I do and how I exercise. I am right now trying to fit in exercise goals-cardio three -five times; strength e3 times; balance and flexibilty 3 times. It is tough. I am trying to do TaiChi which some studies say is the Gold Star for exercise and knees.

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

Carmen....I can tell you what helps me is taking hot baths with epsom salts. I have fibromyalgia & arthritis so my muscles ache. I certainly hope you get some pain relief. I do take lots of pain meds & supplements.


One supplement that really helps my knee pain is curcumin/turmeric. Have you tried that?

I am Carmen from Puerto Rico. I am 61 years old and in the process of getting to discover which arthritis I have. Right now I am in lot of pain, mostly my joints all over my body. Sometimes I can deal with it and stand it, but sometimes I just feel like sitting down and cry all day. I do not know what to do. I need all the support and knowledge I can get. Any suggestion on dealing with pain without reaching to pain killers all the time, they had destroy my stomach. Thank you for this team and all the support I know Sparklers give to each other. Have a blessed day.

My name is Barb. I am 56 and have Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease (most likely Sjogren's), multilevel degenerative disc disease, arthritis in my jaw, hip, knees, ankles and hands, shoulder tendonitis, hip bursitis, etc. I should add that I may also have Fibromyalgia. The doctors go back and forth on that diagnosis. I would love to find some DVDs for Arthritis sufferers that would be possible for me to do and be effective. YouTube doesn't really work well for me a I need to be able to see the screen and perform the exercises. While I have YT on my tv, the search function is not helpful. Though if someone knows of good ones on YT, I would certainly try them just prefer DVD

Hello. I just ,should I say, rejoined. I can't remember when I first joined but find this tea in my list, so must have at some point.

I'm 72 years old and suffer from fibromyalga?(spelling???) and really bad knees. The knees make it hard for me to sleep at night or do stairs. I have a walker that I use on occasion.

The reason for me to want to lose the weight is that I'm obese n need to eleviate the load on the knees My heart would also be very happy!

It's as easy as I make it. Have an action plan and commit to it.

Hi! I have come back to Spark because I know it works as long as I work with it. Iím 67 in Jan. and am finding the arthritis is starting to affect my life in small ways. I spend my time reading, loom knitting and beading. I love to make jewelry. Itís fun. Loom knitting is new to me. I canít crochet much anymore because it just plain hurts. Using the loom is easier on my arms and fingers. I have done one scarf and the first hat turned out too small. The is no pattern. Seems I used the wrong loom so here I go again on a bigger one. Practice makes perfect and I do have the time. I have the long loom but need to get the round ones also. Hats and socks would be easier.
Iím looking forward to meeting everyone.

I will be 65 next month and have already had both my hips replaced. I'm really noticing the arthritis in my hands now but thank God it is osteo and not rheumatoid. I am a church musician so I have to keep using my hands. I have a squeeze ball; maybe I should be using it more often to keep up the strength in the hands.

Hi everyone! I'm 63 and live in south central Texas. I have been diagnosed with arthritis in more parts of my body than I care to explain. When I feel like the pain is so bad that I have to go see the doctor, tests always reveals another spot with arthritis. I have been so incredibly achy since I started on Naturally Slim and SparkPeople last week. I totally dread going back to the doctor on Monday for my 3 month check-up.

I am a traumatic brain injury survivor. It'll be 3 years on the 25th. Someone else did that to me and I have to learn to deal with all of the side issues for the rest of my life. Every new day means another day that I'm not letting this get the best of me!

Movement is extremely painful most days and I would love to learn how others are dealing with it while trying to lose weight.

Hello all.

I am new to the team. Most of my intro you can find by going to my Spark Page.

I've joined the group for motivation to keep moving through the pain.

My personal goals are simple right now: walk a bit outside, eat enough fiber, eat 5-7 fruits & veggies.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Blessings,
Beth in OH

I am new here. I am 44 and I'm married with 2 girls. My husband is an upholsterer with fibromyalgia who had 2 discs replaced last January but had to return to work only a month after surgery, so he still works and hurts. He has both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. My girls are Summer, a freshmen in high school this year and Serena, a freshman in college .

Now about me: I have about 160 pounds to lose. I have lost 50% cartilage loss in my left knee and a torn meniscus in my right. I have osteoarthritis and hurt a lot. I take a water pill and an anti- inflammatory 2 times a day but it doesn't help much. Can you all point out some exercises I can do that won't hurt too bad, please?

emoticon I'm Linda I rejoined in September under current name. I was diagnosed with RA back in 2005 Last year I had the biggest flare up which I'm starting to come out of 2016 I started to gain all my weight back. I'm determined to get back to a healthy weight.

I joined this team after I was leaving a message on a spark friend page. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. I hope to be very active on this team other arthritis teams aren't active as they used to be in the early 2000's

I can sympathize. I have psoriatic arthritis and leaky heart valves, which they won't fix. I am tired all the time and light headed! Also have metabolic issues. I have gained 30 pounds in 2 years. Meeting with an endocrinologist soon and a urologist. Looking for a nutritionist to work with . I was doing water aerobics but couldn't get the energy to go in the cold weather. Need to start again! Think I will also try yoga. I also work 25-27 hours a week with toddlers from 11-6, so I need to find morning classes. My better half won't appreciate this, but...If you need an ear I am here for you

Hi, I'm Kelly. I have been on and off SP since 2006. I came back about a year ago after being gone for about 3 or 4 years due to illness. In 2014 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. Changed my whole world. I am trying to figure out how to lose weight by eating healthier with a body that just can't do all that much anymore (physically). I am 54, married and a SAHM to a teenage son.

Runnin' down a dream'' .... Tom Petty

Hello. My name is Pam and I have been a long-standing SP member since 2010. I have torn rotator cuffs and within the last month of shoulder pain, found out that my shoulder joint is bone on bone with calcium deposits, so am doing only shoulder physical therapy exercises for my shoulders. Searched for an arthritis group and liked this one for the challenges.

I hope the shots work! Try to be as active as you can but don't over do it. I have osteoarthritis and it gets hard to move sometimes. Remember every little bit helps! Bless you from Carol emoticon

I have known that OA is present in several joints. By xray yesterday I now know that it is bone on bone on the lateral aspect of my right knee. The PA did a cortisone injection, indicated replacement in the future after a possible trial with gel injection.
I am here for support and info.
Thanks
Linda

Hi, I'm here on my ... I'm not sure how many trip to Spark people. Over the years I've been a member at various times and so far lost just over 30kgs with a long way to go. Very pleased that I'm at my lowest for 15 years though even if it is just the "start". I also know that while I'm dealing with a number of medical issues, I'm much better off for having begun to get healthier and that everything i'm dealing with will also continue to be helped by further weight loss and further focusing on living healthier and a better life. Right now I'm focusing on a personal eight week lose 5% challenge as a kick off to return to a healthier life; and glad to be here as well. I'm in my mid-40's, Australian, single and work part time in a job I enjoy. I'm currently restricted by not being able to do much in the way of exercise but I hope that will change soon. Meanwhile I know my eating habits need a lot of work so that's a good place to focus, and my emotions/stress/etc. etc. etc. Look forward to meeting people here and encouraging one another. I have been diagnosed with OA in my hips and neck, and my physiotherapist is fairly sure in my knees as well (along with who knows how many other areas)

One step at a time we can do it!
