Sorry to hear what you are experiencing. I do not have Arthritis, at least not that I know of. Although, for a few years my was pasted around to many different docs. I have a Rheumy, whom I dont like very much, but he thought I had JRA for some time. He tried me on several meds, I cant remember any but Mobic. But, none of them worked for me. I think he finally gave. All my docs gave up actually, they pretty much sent all around and ended up passing me back to each other! What a mess!
I am only 16 now. This all started when I was about
10 or 11. But, I didnt know then so, I never started going to the doc until I was 12. I was just recently diagnosed with Fibro. I was started on Lyrica and its the first time in my life a medicine has helped me! So, hopefully, I have found my answer.
You mentioned bone spurs, my mom and I both had surgery a year apart on our left foot for spurs. Both were successful. But, we both went an entire year, and I know that was the most painful year I had. They are no fun at all. My mom had a spur in her right foot twice, but luckily they went away, I guess.
I usually dont post here, as I dont have Arthritis, but I wanted to share that with you.
