I started having some osteo-arthritis in my knees. Now my fingers feel so stiff. They hurt a little, but feel so stiff. I don't know what to do.
The doctor I had didn't reccomend anything but Tylenol or Motrin. I have a new doctor, I will talk to her next month I think.
I asked about what I should do or what I should avoid, he didn't tell me much.
Later on a visit, he said: "what are you thinking? you aren't supposed to be running with those knees?" He said I am wearing out my cartilage. So now what, I can't use any joints so I don't wear out???
In the meantime. What can I do to help the stiffness? I crochet, but I use a little rubber holder on the crochet hook so I don't stress the fingers as much.
I think that I should keep moving so it doesn't get worse.
Is there anything other than pills that can help?
