Hi Mary Beth, my name's Diny and I'm from Ontario too. My arthritic problem is in my right ankle. I was born in the year of the klutz and broke the same ankle twice. I now have a steel plate and hardware in it. I had to back out of a pretty physical job because of the arthritis that had set in and have been gaining weight ever since. emoticon

My ortho confirmed the diagnosis of arthritis, but not on the plateau as expected, but behind my knee cap. We have set a goal of losing 20 lbs in 3 months. Spent yesterday back at the gym working with one of the coaches getting a new routine together. This is going to be an uphill climb.

hi Im Karla I'm new here I saw where someone posted about knee pain. I have that too. I started taking a natural herbal component called Curcumin a few months ago. It is from the tumeric plant from India. At first I did not notice too much of a difference except it gently cleaned out my system. Then after about 10 days, i started noticing my knees were more flexible and hurt just a little less than they did before. I also have an injured sciatic nerve, unfortunatly the Curcumin is not helping that. I googled almost every page I could find on curcumin before I started taking it, and now I swear by it

Isnt life fun as we get older! I guess our bones just go through a lot of wear and tear over the years, thus the name 'arthritis'.

I fell on mine (last time) Christmas Eve 2010 and am going to get an x-ray here one of these days for my early July doctor's appointment so we can see what's going on. I suspect it will join my shoulder in having arthritis.

Thank you for posting. I wish you the best of luck with your knee issues. The doctors do say that weight loss is helpful - easier said than done though I find.

5 years ago I took a fall and broke my tibial plateau. Surgery and hardware followed. While I have made a good recovery, recently my knees (especially the one I broke) have become painful. I think that if I lose weight I can reduce the pain. Just starting on this journey, wish me luck.
