Although I have terrible pain in knees, hips and back from the arthritis
originally posted by: anxiouswens
I've been told I need knee replacements but I am too young to have this done because I am only 48. I have degenerative disc disease as well in my lower spine and tears in my hips so obviously I am going to have problems walking but its just this is different from the burning pain. Its almost like my legs are restricted when walking, like I can't do a full stride and its not just walking it is even standing now. I get constant fasculations in my legs when at rest and awful muscle cramps. I have recently also developed a tremor in my left hand when at rest.
However, you may be right if you say you have problems with your back when your knees are at their worst. I certainly walk differently than I used to do because I know if I put too much weight on my knees they just give and a couple of times I have had meniscus tears and have had to have arthroscopies.
Like I said its just the twitching, cramping, pins and needles etc which is really getting me down and the constant throbbing on the back of my head (the reason for the brain scan). My rheumatologist has mentioned Fibromyalgia but that always seems to me to be a made up name for when they don't have a reason why things are happening. a reply to: reldra

I would research MSM with glucosamine and chondroitin, and take magnesium sulfate in water. Also please consider researching the Wim Hof method, and if you have the money and resources please consider Regenokine or Orthokine therapy. You can read a lot about all of those online.

Your are assuming I agree with your first statement.
I would not be here had I not sought medical advice from doctors 33 years ago.
