    I hope you are learning to cope with the arthritis .I have osteo arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis plus a spinal injury (I got hit by an old man driving a lorry ) I worked as a physio assistant till my injuries disabled me so if you want exercise to help just Sparkmail me and I would be glad to help .If you have room for a new friend I would be delighted to add you (I have to keep my page private as my husband is a soldier and when he was deployed in Afghanistan we got awful emails and phone calls that the military police determined the charming sods got our numbers & addresses from googling our online presences)

    I hear you. I totally understand where you are coming from as I too have pain & arthritis, however, I find exercise is the best medicine for me, the days I have mega pain I still exercise but on a slower scale with doing lighter stretches and strength training, my cardio is lighter on those days also but find when I keep moving my body responds favorably...I encourage you to keep moving and exercising, it does help.. emoticon

    I get these little bouts of arthritis whenever I've had too much sugar, fructose especially. It might help you to stop the sugar and eat more veggies, and then drink water to flush it out...hard to give up, I know! Cinnamon helps me process sugar too.

    I've got arthritis in two places in my back and in my knees. I've also got rods in my back. If I don't do the exercises I learned in therapy and go for my walks, I hurt more. Water exercises are also easy and great for the body.

    Many of us are right where you are. You have to decide you can deal with this. It is tiring having chronic pain but there is lots of help. I hope that you can find some relief soon. emoticon

    I have osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and degenerative disc disease and degenerative joint disease. SO, you need to keep moving and doing your exercises. They don't have to be BIG movements, but you have to keep moving. Otherwise your body will lock up and you won't be able to do anything.

So use your access that comes with your monthly assistance and get to the gym. If you are receiving benefits, public gym membership should come with it.

So keep moving, and don't just sit still. I did it for 3 years and I was just laying around waiting to die. it didn't happen, so I finally got up. Don't let that happen to you.

    I have osteoarthritis on my knees, some fingers and shoulders, and have had 13 knee surgeries between the two knees, and there are ways to exercise with it all. You will need to change some of the exercises but there are many more you can incorporate into your routine. emoticon

    I've got osteo arthritis in a lot of joints, and also fibromyalgia which makes exercising even more difficult. I do try and do something every day, even if it's just a walk around Tesco lunchtime, just to keep active.

At the moment it's my right shoulder and wrist that's the worst due to using my mouse so much, so have been trying to use my left hand for the mouse and have been learning keyboard short cuts to cut down on it's use anyway. It's taking a bit of time to get used to it, but I'm getting there.

Hope it all eases soon, although, with the weather changing so suddenly it's sure to affect us.

    So sorry to hear of the diagnosis. Yep - pain is a PITA that's the truth.

Can only agree with all the posts that say exercise does help even if doesn't seem to at the time - and I am not a person that was ever keen on exercise.

I do not want to get any worse, even if no better and every few steps does help - even with setbacks.

We can do this. YES WE CAN!!! One day at a time.

    Sorry to hear of your pain.
I've always heard that it's important to keep moving when you have osteoarthritis in your joints. I've been doing that with my knees (elliptical/biking) but it doesn't always feel like an improvement, but it certainly isn't getting worse.

    If you are not able to develop your own exercises, you should seek the services of a physical therapist. They can show you how not to do further harm to yourself and how to get the greatest benefit from the exercises.

    Don't despair! I have osteoarthritis, too, and had serious back trouble because of it (spondylolisthesis of L4 and L5, originally very unstable and so painful I was in misery). I also have it in my hands, arms, and one shoulder. But through strength training, I have gone from being in a lot of pain 24/7 to having only mild, occasional pain. When I started ST, everything had to be heavily modified and I progressed slowly. But things started to improve pain-wise within about a month, and now, a year later, I often forget that I have arthritis! I do strenuous workouts and enjoy them 5 times a week.

Another thing that helped me was the elliptical machine. I started out slow, there, too. Many days, the only time I didn't have pain was for about 20 minutes on the elliptical. Now I can do a lot more, with high resistance. I also use the rowing machine and love it. Very good for your hips/back.

Good luck to you! Don' t give up. You might need to find a different approach, but exercise is the most likely thing that can help you.

Edited to add: When I first started, I also did the PT that the spine clinic recommended to me, which were modified Pilates moves. That also helped get me to the point where I could do more at the gym.

    Keep moving, modify exercises, research what to do , and follow advice of your doctors. It's best to stay as limber as possible. I hope you find some methods of relief soon, take care. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Both me and my DH have it too . . . . and we have to keep moving.
Cooler temps don't help much but soaks in the tub (epsom salts, etc.) do help.
But when we stop moving, we hurt worse.

Modified yoga, stretching and seated core exercises (chair exercise team!) REALLY HELPS me.

Some people have trigger foods as well . . . . You might want to track your foods closely and see if there's any relationship to what you eat and how you feel. . . . it's worth it.

Most importantly . . . . keep on moving!

    So sorry to hear your diagnosis. I have arthritis also. Exercise is actually really good for arthritis. Just do gentle easier exercises and it will help keep you flexible and will help you feel less pain. emoticon

    I was diagnosed with osteo in my 30s. R.A. at 38. You can adapt your exercises to keep active. Specialists recommend that you stay active. It helps the pain and helps your joints. This acute phase will pass and you can get back to gentle exercise.

    The best medicine for OA is exercise, particularly for the back. They are painful at first, but they do work. You need to see a physical therapist and then do the exercises religiously. I speak from experience. And I know how bad it hurts. I have it in my spine, my knees, my hands, and my shoulders.
