I think that every home that has been built in the past 20 or 25 years has concrete floors. If you have good pads under the carpets you should be OK - if not I suggest you buy a gel pad at least for the kitchen so when you have to stand up for long periods of time you're not on cement.

We don't all have wet send nearby. Might try walking on the high school dirt track, or in your neighborhood park on a cleared path. Anything but concrete (marble and tile are laid over concrete).

Whatever you do, keep moving. When you don't move the pain gets worse.

Night all

Welcome from California. Take it slowly and take smaller steps. I have osteoarthritis in both knees and the doctor tells me to lose weight. OK I will wave my magic wand and it will all go away. HA. I rely on OTC meds to keep me going. Bev

emoticon I have arthritis in both knees. The Dr told my to use a staff or cane and carry it on the good side when walking and lean on it. I found I could walk longer distances with my staff. I went from struggling to make 6000 steps a day to having to keep my steps below 25,000 a day or I would have problems walking the next day. In other words take it slow, use any aids that help, and don't over do it. Remember that the surface you are walking on makes a big difference. Hard sand is the easiest. Concert is the worse. Tile, and marble are also bad. Mose stores are concert. If it looks like carpet it is normally a thin carpet over concert.

Objects in the mirror will get thinner than they now appear

I'm new to this team. My worst moments with joints come usually when I'm walking. I have one knee that just goes out from under me for no apparent reason...i have joints that tell me when the weather changes too...but I am working hard to ensure I am there for my kids!!!


Lana, taking life one day at a time, working through pain and stress towards a more healthy me :)
