Me too, in multiple joints, as well as ankylosing spondylitis. It just occurred to me, that maybe there is a connection?
I have osteoarthritis and bursitis, tennis and golfers elbow......
I am sorry to hear this, but hope the surgery gives you some relief...gentle ((hugs))
((Hugs)) JudiAllen. Your big toe? That has to hurt. I am 57. I developed arthritis in my left knee, in my 40s. I now have it in both knees, both shoulders, hands, wrists, neck, spine, sacroiliac joints, and the most recent, achilles. It is osteoarthritis. I feel like it is related to fibromyalgia, but, I never see that it is one of the symptoms, in the med sites.
# arthritis I have osteoarthritis in various joints (including one of my big toes.. How's that for weird). I also have Carpo Meta Carpal arthritis. It is causing my hands and fingers to feel numb but have hot electric shock type pain. They really hurt. I think the osteoarthritis isn't surprising as I'm in my 60s but my Dr has told me that because our bodies process pain differently it can seem much worse. I hope your body is being kind to you.
