Be sure to keep moving it's good for you. Don't give in to the pain, if you let it run your life you lose. Best of Luck!

Welcome! When I couldn't move much I did an arthritis workout sitting down and it was awesome! Also, I don't know if you can do water aerobics but that helped me too. Glad you are here!

Welcome to the team.You will get a lot of support here. I know exactly what you mean when you talk about OA pain. I have it in my spine, both knees, and I'm having both hips replaced in September. Work with your doctor, and try to remain as active as you can.

I was diagnosed with OA and Fibromyalgia in 2008, after a serious car wreck. I have been in 17 wrecks in my 54 yrs, some my fault, some not. I know, I don't understand it either! but they have done serious damage to my neck, and the very first wreck, I was only 15 and a passenger. I broke my lower lumbar, (back), clean in two, the Doc's say --- without severing the spinal cord. I had to learn to walk again. they said I could not have children , I had 2, but the later nearly killed me and her. They also said I would have very bad arthritis when I'm older. I do, in every joint except my elbows. I am very over weight, and have realized if I don't get it off, I , not only will not be around long. But I want to get a life back. I am so thankful I found this sight, just roaming around the net one day (last wk.), so I'm on a few sparks teams and am tyring to keep up with it all and still learn the sight. and still exercise! On top of all things, although, I am on a very fixed income at this time I'm looking around for a place to share. And will hopefully make many friends here. I need you!!! This stuff is painful. emoticon
