I had my right knee scoped 14 months ago, doing well. But last fall in Montana I couldn't walk as far or fast as I used to. Both 62 year old knees have significant arthritis.
What is an exercise that would reduce arthritic discomfort associated with extended hiking up and down.
In addition to the exercise you might consider flax oil. I used to have issues with my hands to the point that I could hardly hold a golf club. Years ago I came across a bulletin touting the benefits. Worked wonders for me. my hands are like nothing was ever wrong with them.
I get mine from Swanson's Vitamins. SWE002 Flaxseed Oil (OmegaTru) 3 gel caps around lunchtime. 2 later in the evening.
Right now dealing with spinal stenosis and sciatica. Diagnosed with osteoarthritis, but I don't recall a firm diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Saying that you have the rheumatoid version is a good way to get bypassed or penalized for Medicare supplement insurance.
