I have to admit this has been the best day in months as far as pain goes. I really don't hurt at all just, a liitle in my foot where I have plantarfascitis

Thanks, LadyS

The best of it is that, even though I didn't manage to get in proper stretching after the upstairs & downhill, and previous walking - I think the small things I did in the car (like ankle circles etc) maybe kept my muscles ok, then they got a cool down at the next couple of shops! And again, after that, I sat in the car and circled my ankles, clenched and unclenched my toes, whatever!
And today - I feel like I'd got a decent cool down and stretch!

But today, not as much energy as I'd have liked - though I think that's probably due to the migraine I had today, which was probably triggered by the flashing of the sunlight through the trees along the roadside, plus some flashing imagery on TV last night.

Today - my ankles and my knees are paining me.
It wasn't helped by DH deciding that my short shopping expedition should become a major event. So, like 2 1/2 miles later, and a hill and steps to go up - only to have to walk down the same hill on the other side, when in fact we could have gone round either left or right, and had only a little bit of a hill to cope with - and with DH being delighted that he managed the hill and steps up the way (like nah-nah/nah-nah-nah) and my leg joints protesting at every step - I'm supposed to be able to smile and congratulate him?
Well, yes, apparently!
However, what he got - first time he mentioned how he'd managed the uphill and steps was me growling that fine, but only an idiot would climb up all those steps only to walk back down the hill again!
Going down the hill was fine for me. Did I ram that down DH's throat? No - and I still haven't mentioned it. But if I hear one more time about how well he coped with those steps..............

Sorry - rant over!
At least my back was OK today with the walking - even though it was aching before we went out, and was aching a bit in a couple of shops. Standing, instead of moving - definitely increases the problem for me.
Probably why I move around so much in the kitchen, even just preparing and cooking the dinner!!!!

Enjoy the rest of your day.

My knee has been aching for the past few weeks, along with some other joints. So I've been spending more time on my magnet pads.
This makes a difference, positively, to my leg joints, but really ****s up the rest of my day!

Swings and roundabouts doesn't even begin to approach the problem, does it?!
Whatever positive thinking, plus all the supportive comments on my various teams here on SP, and on a couple of other sites - that's what keeps me on the straight and narrow.

My knee is killing me. I tried to do a mile walking tape but it was too much, even with my brace on. I went up stairs and got on the recumbent bike. I was determined to get in some type of exercise today.

It was my leg muscles - but I went out for the same walk (but a bit further) today. So I'll see what tomorrow brings!

I drove through a horrendous pothole on my way home the other night - I need to get the car's wheels and tyres checked out. And I've been aching ever since.

Neck, left shoulder and something new...my right foot started really hurting when I'd step on it after lunch, but only some of the time. I'd start walking and yell "ouch!" and the people at work started to think that I was crazy. (Well okay, I probably am, but that's not the reason why. emoticon )

My knees have been bugging me today and that's definitely arthritis, but the old back injury in the lower left portion of my back has really been bugging me for a few days. I think I'm going to have to go by and make an appointment with my chiroparctor on Monday.

My back injury is continuing to hurt, but today my doggone knees are just pitching a fit about every darn thing I try to while standing. It's really kind of irritating...

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

The supposedly healed injury to my lower left back was really bothering me at work today, even when I was sitting down. And my neck was hurting, too. Hard to say whether the neck was arthritis or just the opposite side pain that I get when the back injury is really bothering me.(Man, getting old really stinks...)

There was much rejoicing!

Still my upper back, more than anything. Though I'm feeling my knees and ankles just now, after 2 x 15 minute sets of very brisk walking. And my wrists are letting me know that I then did all the ironing!
The knees and ankles will be fine after a night on the magnets, I'm sure, as i did some good stretching after I was done walking.

Yes - my knees are aching, most days, especially my right knee which I damaged again last Christmas ( so just over a year ago) when I fell in the snow and ice just outside my house.
The last few days, the additional pain has been in my upper back - from my time-of-the-year bronchitis. It's not been so bad today, as I had a good coughing fit last night, and another small one today.
But then I had a migraine! Again, I knew it was coming, as I've been headachy for the past few days, and even my green tea has left me feeling nauseous - fairly consistent symptoms.
This evening - I'm feeling much better from everything, and I'm even looking forward to my (belated) dinner emoticon

My knees almost always hurt to some extent or other, but today the left one (the one I've injured the most) is really hurting a LOT. Also my neck is hurting a bit and an injury to the lower left portion of my back, which I thought had healed, is really hurting again. Cold weather is the pits.

There was much rejoicing!

Long35,
I understand what you are saying and I do take it after my breakfast and dinner, always with food. I am sure it does work, but right now I have bone on bone, with my knee, so that is why I am saying, at this time, nothing is really going to work for me. My doctor knows that too. Just had the series of injections for hyalgon for 5 weeks, now we wait.
Thanks for sharing.

Irish, Naproxen is very much the same as Motrin when it comes to ulcers. All anti-inflammatories will cause ulcers including aspirin and Celebrex. If you will eat a little something before you take it, you should have no problem - but I certainly would not suggest that Naproxen is benign.

Well, I think we all hurt everyday with arthritis and that it is something we have to accept. I remember my doctor telling me, "You have to learn to live with it."

The drug I am on now, not does not help me at all, Naproxen.
However, I take it, instead of Motrin. That was causing--- ringing in my ears, for one of the symptoms. So, had to stop the motrin (Ibprofen)
It can also give you ulcers I am told if taking too much. I was definitely taking too much of that.

So, in the meantime, I try to do the best I can and not dwell on it and be depressed everyday.
Exercise in moderation on the days when I need to.
Hope to lose this weight before my second knee replacement time comes around, which may be in the Spring.
Hopefully we can lift up each other's spirits and be there and help each other be positive no matter what. I always think there are others, much worse off than I am. Prayer helps me too, very much.
Enjoy your day everyone. Keep warm if you can.

Today it's my lower back, (the sore knees are a given), which sucks because I have to work from 10am-6pm and I'll be on my feet all day in the store. It's snowing like crazy out, so maybe it won't be as wacky-busy as most Saturdays are.

For me it's just my back. Can't tie my own shoes or put one of my socks on most mornings. This limited range of motion is so annoying! I used to be able to outwork most men and now I have all I can do to get moving.

Walking helps a lot but cold makes it not only impossible to go walking for more than ten or fifteen minutes, the slightest draft makes my back hurt that much worse. I can't seem to get myself into a pattern for doing stretching exercises but I need to do that.

Once in awhile I might get a transient pain in an ankle or a wrist but, thank God, that is not a frequent occurrance and an aspirin or two takes care of that in short order.

I have pain that travels around like you described and I was 1sst. diagnosed with Fibro and now with chronic Lyme disease. If you decide to get checked for Lyme go to a Lyme literate doc- go the w=the web site for the Lyme Disease Association.

Lyme has symptoms very similar to fibro and it is often mis-diagnosed.

Jill, you are my neighbor, and yes you can blame it on the weather. It was VERY wet for a while, then it got very cold (for us) for a while, now it is very warm. We have gone from LOW, to HIGH in a very short time. The barometer changes have as much to do with our pain as the actual weather does.

As for pain medi, I take Celebrex. I also take Skelaxin as needed. For some people it works very well, and for others not so well (according to the web comments). It is a really expensive muscle relaxant that does not put you to sleep - I like it.

My knees, neck and lower back hurt today. In fact, I called my Dr. as have been using (?sp)ibophren and aspirin for pain and neither one have been working that well. He called in Celebrex for me so I looked it up online and it said do not use if you take Celexa which I do. What, if anything helps with the pain? It's been nice here in So. California so I can't blame the weather--I'm in my early sixties and it just keeps getting worse with age.

Well, Happy birthday Linda!

Long, my neighbour thinks my symptoms sound like Fibromyalgia too (she has it). My family doctor has told me I have osteo in my knees, hands and back (but lately my hips have been very sore as well). It could just be an age thing.

Almost sounds like Fibromyalgia. Have you been checked for that? In my experience, osteo pretty much presents where the damage is. Right now, on me, it is my neck (had surgery there several years ago). It's pretty consistent in my lower back where I have disintegrating vertebrae. Never in places where there is no damage (yet).

Hi all,

My name is Arlene and Iím challenged by arthritis (OA). I'm new to the group. I don't know how it is with most of you, but I find my pain tends to travel around from day-to-day ... perhaps my knees and wrists are extremely painful one day ... then the following day it might be my hips and my back. Other days, everything hurts, etc.

Just thought I'd start a topic called, "What hurts today?"
emoticon emoticon
This morning my knees were aching horribly, and now this evening it's mostly my back.

So, I'm asking you all...
