Something that I finds helps me, and it helped my Mum too when I could get her to do it - drink your water.
For me, a good 8 cups of water or 0 calorie/caffeine/tannin/ sugar or anything else drinks per day eases the joints.
Mum found this as well, when she was able to take a cup of water on the hour every hour during the day. actually, I think she took just 1/2 cup, but even that was a help.

Judy, apparently it doesn't matter if it's very mild or severe it's painful. I did some ice and heat. That seems to help. I remember my mom always complaining about her aches when the weather was bad. I need to lose about 35 pounds to get to goal weight of 120-125. I know this will help. I'm really struggling losing any weight!

Arthritis will let you know when there is a change of weather. Just take it one day at a time.

I'm going to try going for a walk today. Yesterday was raining on and off. I bet that's why my knee ached so much. For having very mild/pre arthritis it sure ached a lot. It's hard knowing I'm now stuck with this. I guess I thought I never would have it. I've been so healthy and active. I guess something that comes with age and wear and tear. I won't let this stop me from living!

Thanks for the welcome! I can do stationary bike. I need to get one. I suppose I could do water too. He said, right now the OA is very mild. So I'm thinking the shots should work well. From researching it online, it works best in mild to moderate. It took me a year to finally get a doc to find out what was going on with my calf and IT band. Good to be here. I'm in the beginning of acceptance. This is hard to take.

Thanks for the welcome!

Judy, my knees are good. He said, my knee caps look really great! It's the side of my knee where I had that tear. That's where the bone on bone is happening. That's why I'm having pain there and down my calf. It really stinks. I've been so very active all my life. I'll get these shots and I'm believing they are going to work and I'll have knees like I'm 16. I just want to speed walk and do my home DVD's.

Hi Debbie. Welcome to our Team. When I had bone on bone I had total knee replacements and have very good results from it. Dr said I have more bend in my knees than most people have without any knee trouble. If you can get into a pool it will help with the pain. Just walking in the pool will be a big help even with recovery.

Hi All, I'm Debbie.

I just joined this team. Today I found out I have pre arthritis. I've been having a lot of pain on the side of my knee and calf. I had to go through 4 or 5 doctors to finally get a "correct" diagnosis. Now I'm going to have to get the fluid therapy shots. Supartz shots. A round of 5 shots. anyone here have that done?? From researching it online I've heard some say it was very painful. I've had cortisone shots which were extremely painful.

I haven't been able to exercise for 6 months. I can walk. But lately too painful to even walk. I had a meniscus tear surgery 3 months ago. The new doctor order a MRI and got the results today. Which showed I have pre arthritis and it's bone on bone. I'm really bummed out!
