Rache -- My situation is similar to Diane's - also caused by OA and bone spurs. Think my pain is also worse with the fibro, but that's definitely not the total picture. My doctor has told me that I will eventually have to have surgery, maybe just arthroscopic type, and I am close to giving her the go-ahead to send me to an orthopedist. May have the left one done this summer; see my doctor soon and we'll discuss it again then. Do hope you decide to get this checked out -- even an x-ray can tell them if you have arthritis or spurs and if you need an MRI. Please let us know what happens. We do care...
