Re: Arthritis at 41?
I am 39 and will be having surgery for arthritis on my hand next week. About a year ago, I was having pain in my hands so bad that it hurt to drive or hold a coffee cup. The Dr ran a bunch of blood tests and they all came back normal. About 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with fibromyalsia, but never treated for that b/c most drs did not believe in that particular "disease". It was called the "woman's excuse for pain". I still have pains in my neck, shoulders, back and knees. I am on celebrex once a day, but usually take an extra 2-3 tylenol. I WISH YOU TONS OF LUCK! Hope you have great doctors.
