Hey everyone. I am 33 year old mother of 2. I first started having knee pain in 2003. In 2004 it had started in the other knee as well. I am now I have been out of work since june of 2007. My docs have told me i have no cartlidge left in my knees and the only fix would be total knee replacements. But as with everything in life there is a catch...they wont do the surgery until I get older. My osteo doc says they dont like to replace the joints but 2 x's in your life so I am stuck till i get in my 50's. I have alot of pain and discomfort from this, plus it has been suggested that I have fibromyalgia also. I also suffer from depression from dealing with all the pain. Is any one else out there dealing with this, being in pain knowing there is a fix but too young to get it?
Thanks for reading, and sharing!
Take care and God bless!
Dealing with:
Osteoarthritis in both knees, hypertension, depression, Fibromyalgia, Possible chronic fatigue, IBS,
This life is just a prelude to the eternity that awaits us all.....where have you made your reservations?

Have you tried any of the fluid replacement injections they might reduce some of the pain.
