| | Re: Early symptoms of osteo-arthritis?
With over 100 different kinds of Arthritis, it could be any one of them, including osteo. Have you been to see a doctor (or a specialist - rhuematologist)? He/She will be more able to tell you what kind of pain you are having and what might be causing it. How long have you had the pain? Is it persistant? Does it get worse in the morning or in the cold or during rain? These are things your doctor will want to know. Start keeping a journal about your symptoms so you can take it with you when you see someone. List all the over-the-counter meds you are trying and what effects they are having on you.
Good luck & I hope you feel better soon!
