Does Arthritis Cause Knife Like Pain?

I had an episode of sharp, shooting pain in my hip that came and went quickly but was far more severe than what I typically feel (deep ache, burning, stiffness, grinding) from Arthritis. Anyone experience knife-like arthritis pain in a joint?

It sure can! My knees used to catch on a bone spur and the pain would shoot right through my whole body! Now I have them in my hips and when I catch one of them just right, the pain shoots like a bullet right through the whole hip and pelvis.

OA can hurt like the devil and if you have bone spurs in the joint and hit them, it kills.

Thanks Jenny,
Your explanation makes perfect sense. I have two bone spurs and shortly before the pain started I was moving laterally while playing basketball with my son. "Hurts like the devil" for sure. At least I know what I risk when being active. Thank you again.
