Aching Joints

Recommended Posts

I think you should have any persistent joint pain checked by an orthopedic surgeon.


When I was undergoing treatment for lymphoma, they asked me how much trouble I had walking, what with the avascular necrosis in my hip, that they saw on a scan. I just that I had a little glitch from age (late 40s at the time). A few years later I had a complete hip replacement.


Thus I dodn't try to guess at these things.


As for scleroderma pain, myalgia (muscle inflammation) is much worse for me than any joint pain. They can be hard to tell apart. At a time when I was in a lot of pain I had a x-ray of a joint, which showed no arthritis - which narrowed it down to myalgia.
