: The other day I got up and had pain in my knee. The following day I had pain in my lower back then it went to my hip and down my right leg. Today my whole body is sore. I'm only 34. I feel like I'm 80, or have been in a car accident. Could a trip to my Chiropractor help or could it be more? Any thoughts?
Arthritis can set in rapidly and cause many permanant health problems. If you are having these symptoms for more than an hour at a time for up to 6 weeks you may be exhibiting symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis. you may want to look at dna...com and read over the information they have there about RA and see if any of it applies to you. There are also many different foundations that would be happy to answer questions you may have about this condition and if it is indeed a concern for you.
There are different types of Arthritis and not all of them are permanent, but they all can do substantial damage to your joints. Do yourself a favor and catch this as early as possible.
