Rapid onset of Osteoarthritis

I have been told I have rapid onset of osteoarthritis but they do no know what is causing it. I can barely walk because my right hip is in so much pain all the way down my leg. My joints in my knees, ankles, wrist and elbows are attacked with severe pain in the middle of the night and I feel like I am getting shocked down the back of my legs every time I take a step unless I take the prednisone. Does anyone else have these symtoms?

Re: Rapid onset of Osteoarthritis

I have osteoarthritis in my lower lumbar facet joints (among several other joints). This has had me in the most severe pain I have ever known in my life. I have nerve root irritation to the nerves going down the legs. Nerve lesioning in the lower lumbar area has helped me immensely. I recommend seeing a pain specialist. Hope this helps. No reason to suffer any more or longer than necessary. Good luck to you!
