Hello need help...
I had both of my knees replaced four years ago and am doing great. I also have OA and some RA. Best thing for you is yoga and physical therapy. See Pili at Physiotherapy Associates in Upland. She's amazing.

Well, first off you have to be a newly immigrated senior to get any SS benes worth anything. Or you could run for congress and serve just one term and you're all set. Good luck.

Whatever you do, do not take Prednisone. It will destroy your joints. Ask a whole lot of questions if your doctor prescribes it for you.

Need Help - I have been soon absorbed & obsessed by the concept and evidence of Acidosis. If you dig into it and search around, Acidosis is the root pretty much all disease. Not only from the food we eat, but the air we breathe, the toxic chemicals all around us, stress and dehydration. In your case, I think it is all the toxic pharmaceutical drugs that have accumulated and caused the acidosis. Start with Apple Cider Vinegar everyday and a tspn of baking soda in water every few days. Take lots of antioxidants and think "Alkalize". A long time ago I wasted a lot of time trying to get on SS but it was a joke and besides that, if you do get it and you can live on sooooo little, all you'll do is stay home, be miserable and waste away. Google Acidosis and get on some kind of acid/alkaline diet.
