Hello ~ Newbie here; a retired nurse who inherited OA from my Mother and Grandmother.
I was aware of and experienced the usual OA symptoms throughout my body, but I was totally unprepared for the sudden flare up in a knee that rendered me immobile and sent me to urgent care! There were just a few twinges that came and went while walking on the road a couple of weeks ago ....and then whammo....I awoke from sleep with sharp pain and swelling
It was a wake up call to get my health habits back up to snuff (diet/exercise), and googling treatment/prevention info led me here, so I thought I'd join chat in case I have any questions or some input down the road.
Your site is amazing; what a wealth of info...THANK YOU!!
