I have just been diagnosed with osteoarthritis by my primary

I have just been diagnosed with osteoarthritis by my primary provider; the pain started about three weeksa ago. I am taking Tylenol three times a day to help with the pain. Pain is in hip and knee. Is there anything I can do myself through light exercise to help? Am 71 and try to exercise at least four times a week. Thank you.

I m a 49 year old male always been healthy working out for almost 30 years and never taken prescription medicines. Over the last few years I ve been having some issues with my lower wisdom teeth causing my gums to get swollen and infected and I would always take a z-pack but about 3 months and until recently about 6 weeks ago I started experiencing pain in my joints, hands, toes, feet and achy muscles, fatigued. I even have a few lymphomas around my body but the ones around my hip I feel a bit of pain. I went and saw a podiatrist for my little toe pain which I had seen him for before because I slammed it and he didn t see any fractures and gave me a cortisone injection again. I had an accident and fractured my tibia (plateau fracture) and saw my orthopedic surgeon and he said everything look ok except some mild osteoarthritis in my knees and I told him to give me cortisone shoots in both knees but still feel some pain. I finally saw my primary care physician he did routine blood work everything came back ok. He suggested that I see a rheumatologist which I did and he ran all the autoimmune blood work everything came back ok except my hematology sedimentation rate was 18 and not below 10. He diagnosed me with mild inflammation and/or osteoarthritis. He suggested I take anti-inflammatory drugs so he gave me samples of Vimovo and Duexis and now he recommended Nabumetone. I m still not getting better and I ve scheduled my lower wisdom teeth to be extracted next week. My question is can my wisdom teeth cause any of those symptoms or can it be something else?

I was diagnosed with advanced osteoarthritis of the lower back and knee by my primary care Dr. she also determined from the x-rays my L4 has some slippage over my L5. I have not been injured or in an accident. I am 49 years old. My pain has been chronic for a year now. prior to this problem I have been very active and involved in sports my entire life. I have tried everything. Chiropractic treatment, massage, spa, stretching, I am unable to work out past a warm up stage because the pain is intense. I am tired all the time. I cannot get comfortable in any position. Just walking or standing causes pain in the back of my legs down to the ankle. All of my joints are aching all of the time. I am scheduled for an MRI before I see a surgeon about my lower back and knee. An epidural shot was recommended. Is this the best course of action? Could this be something worse?

My name is Susan. I take hydrocodone/acetaminophen 750/325 and have osteoarthritis of spine along with a number of other problems that have basically disabled my body. I was taking a peach/pink pill which I was told was Qualitest. I went to Walmart and got another pill. And then I went back to the first place that was filling my prescriptions and got the pink/peach pill because that seemed to agree more with my system. I just wanted to know what that pill is called so I can ask my primary to request that for me. I believe it was a generic form. When he wrote for Norco in the beginning that is the pill I received.
