How long have you had Osteoarthritis? Are you taking meds/what kind? injections? Have you talked to your doctor about hip or knee replacements?
Chronic Generalized pain
I’m 63 and I started getting symptoms at @25 y/o. Back then I didn’t take meds yet but got occasional massages and saw a chiropractor on occasion. Now I’m in pain every day even though I take Gabapentin and Diclofenac, both twice daily. I had a total hip replacement but still have occasional pain but more range of movement. I need a knee replacement but I’m nervous because recuperating from my hip was awful. I had cortisone shots in both knees @ 2 weeks ago but it hasn’t helped yet. I hate arthritis!
I am just now getting used to replying to messages sorry it's taking so long
He used to be on Celebrex and other NSAIDs but my stomach is destroyed and I have a 5 cm hiatal hernia so the only pain medication I can take is Tramadol 50 mg and Tylenol.
The Tramadol does very little I have two dislocated shoulders one is permanent and I have fallen a number of times because I am a huge fall risk from The Strokes
I desperately need my feet fixed I have a hammer toe on the second to the big toe and I need then straightened out because until then I keep falling
I just started taking CBD, because the pain is not anywhere near being taken care of. Go on Medicare on May 1st and I am hoping for some better doctors.
