not sure if I have arthritis or not. I have upper back pain shoulder pain hips sometimes upper arms sternum area. I seem to feel a little better if I move around a bit. Dr. thought fybro but I'm not sure .i wouldn't think it would be this painful.please someone enlighten me
Fibro often responds well to easy exercise so I tend to agree with your Dr. I have it along with RA and some other things and using a med called Lyrica have it pretty much under control. Did your Dr test for Arthritis or check you for Fibro? Fibro can be extrmemly painful so your pain levels are not much of an indicator.
I hope you get your pain figured out soon and take care
