Osteoarthritis And Fibro?

Osteoarthritis And Fibro?

Im only 24 years old and have just been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my sacroiliac joints. This is on top of my fibro (diagnosed around 7 months ago, symptoms for over a year beforehand). Does anyone else have both? I cant handle the pain from the two together!! When i’m in pain from the arthritis (which is pretty much everyday), my fibro flares and its just horrible!

Yep. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis about a year ago. It just gets to be unbearable. So Sorry that you have to deal with this

Oh my goodness, that sounds terrible, I’m so sorry that you’re going through that. Have you been to a pain management clinic yet? If you are able to live in a fibro/arthritic friendly climate, that would probably give you overall relief, especially as you get older.

I read the other day that a Dr had come up with a blood test to see if you have fibro or not. I got one would really like to have it done just to be sure. If it's something else maybe they can fix it. I still would hurry from all the other things going on in my body but if they could fix one that would be great

Have you tried Medical Cannabis? I find Medical Cannabis helps relieve Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis. I use Medical Cannabis on a daily basis, theres a number of options with Medical Cannabis: Inhale, edibles, drops,pill form and patches.
