Re: Does arthritis cause sharp pains
Osteoarthritis is commonly associated with aging and/or previous injury.
It sounds as if you are getting good medical attention, and should get a precise dianosis and treatment advice. There are different types of arthritis, but I am pretty sure you doctor is talking "osteo". The pain can be different in quality, so in itself it is not diagnostic. Let the medicos make a full diagnosis, so they can give you the correct advice. All the best.
