Hi, My name is ChristianA.I am 22.I started out having arthritis when I was about 20 years of age it started out when I graduated High School. Anyway, I started having pains in my sides. Then it started hurting for 3 months. I didn't do nothing when it started but, it's gotten worse. My mother ask me why I was limping side ways.I had told her about it. She decided to get me a check up. Later after the test results. They said that I had Arthritis. And for me to take asprin. But, it didn't matter. Because,it's gotten worse. And as I got older. I started having more pains in my fingers,wrist,shoulders. Now it's like I have to be careful when I do exercise because, I will be sore for months. Not doing much exercise. I can do 10 setups And my adominal muscle will be hurting really bad. I use to do 10 and have no pain. Now it's hard for me. I sprain my finger playing volley ball. And it started hurting for a while.When I went to the doctor.He said it was swollen. And for me to keep ice on it. I did but,it's gotten worse. It was still hurting two weeks later. It took about 3till 4months to heal.Sometimes it gets really bad.And it's sad that I have it at a young age. I'm only 5'7 and I weigh about 110lbs. If anyone have the exact same problem that I have. Please write to me. I would love to hear your story.
