I think I have arthritis pain. I guess my doc

I think I have arthritis pain. I guess my doc is the one to diagnose me, I have aches in different parts of my body, My arms, my hands & wrists and sometimes thighs. I'm 68 years old. Is this typical? My lower back just reminded me to not forget about it. Can arthritis be cured? or treated?

twice I have been in the ER with extreme crushing chest pain. Both times I was told my heart was fine, and I have to no reason to think otherwise, as did not feel like a heartattack to me. Two shots of morphine could not relieve the pain. Everytime my chest moved to breath the pain was almost unbareable. I was told it could arthritis of the ribs. Does that sound right to you? The two attacks were not close together either, they were at least a year apart. I guess I want to know who to avoid them in the future. Thank you

I am a 47 yr old woman with a history of arthritis that has caused some pain and being treated for it over the last several years. However, I have continued to have worsened pain, especially in the bones of my pelvis,hips,femurs,tibias and knees. My doc said it was just probably my arthritis and put me on Celebrex, Lyrica, Orphenadrine and Tramadol. These meds have helped with the joints somewhat but the bone pain has worsened over the last year. I am anemic and my doctor was watching enlarged lymph nodes the last several visits over the past 8 months. I lost my health insurance and nothing new has been done. *Another note: I had an MRI and the medical report said There is a mulitfocal patchy heterogeneous bone marrow signal predominantly throughout the proximal tibia but also to a lesser extent effecting the distal femur in a few spots. These areas are hyperintense on T2 and Stir and hypointense on T1. Possibly due to red marrow hyperplasia, but other etiologies cannot be completely excluded. I guess my question is...what should I do? Is this serious? Should I be concerned? If I should be seen...then I will get seen somehow, even if in the ER with this awful bone pain. Thanks so much!
