It's a bugger isn't it? I was told I'd got Osteoarthritis when I was 30. As you say, it comes and goes. My hands are quite bad, but then I've got dupuytren's as well
. I've also had arthritis in my knees, shoulders, elbows, hips etc.etc.etc, but as you say it moves around. It's currently active in the big toe joint on my left foot which makes walking any distance a bit of a pain. Cycling is no problem though for some reason - no weight on it probably.
What I don't understand about arthritis is that it's supposed to be caused by wear and tear in the joints and yet the advice from the medical profession is to get plenty of exercise, which logically should cause more wear and tear and therefore make it worse....
You don't have to be crazy to post here, but it helps....
