My mother has had rheumatoid arthritis for 41 years and she is 44 years old now. She has had 4 operations, 2 hip replacements and two knee replacements. There are times when she is in severe pain and she can't even sleep.

I have osteoarthritis. I have it in my right hip and starting to get it in the left hip, my lower back, left thumb, and right foot. I have had 7 surgeries and I am going to have both of my hips replaced and left thumb fused soon. I am 51 years old.
