This is my first post in this forum. I have osteoarthritis in various joints although it usually does not cause big problems. about
five years ago I had a flare-up in my left knee that forced me to use crutches for about
two weeks before I was back to normal. Yesterday my knee flared up again and I'm back on crutches. It hurts quite a bit. I don't know what I did to cause this (the first time I abused my knee and that was the cause). I was on vacation about
ten days ago and did fair amount of hiking, but I was careful and experienced no problems at the time. My question is this -- could hiking ten days ago be responsible for a arthritis flare-up now? I would have thought that if hiking would cause a problem, the problem would have manifested itself more quickly. But I can't think of anything else that would be responsible.
