Is there anyone else (or anyone in their late 20s or 30s) who has been diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in the spine? Or felt like they just woke up one day with joint problems?

I just responded to your other post but I can tell you a bit more about myself here.

I just turned 30 last month. I have advanced osteoarthritis in both knees, my left needs an immediate replacement but my femur is broke (38+months) so I have to wait until it heals. Because of the condition of my knees my hips also have arthritis. I suffered hand/wrist injuries as well. 3/7 days a week my left hand curls itself into a ball and I can barely use it to drive. My right wrist locks which restricts my ability to use my walking aids (walker, arm crutch, cane). On really bad days I am in my wheelchair and my husband pushes because I can't control my hands to propel the wheels.

I was told after my accident I would continue to recover but unfortunately it has been the opposite. As time goes by the joints they hoped would heal continue to degenerate.

Delmar you're not alone.
MVA Feb 2011 - Multiple fractures min. 3 per limb, all 4 limbs. Severe trauma to left leg including severed popliteal artery. Advanced osteoarthritis of left knee. Femur still non union at 36 months. Chronic pain, PTSD, previous diagnosis of manic depression.

Keep positive, stay strong, and persevere!
