When the pain and disability from arthritis get too much to bear, a person may decide to look for solutions. My husband is one such person who has just decided to do something about the pain which began eight years ago. His right wrist is severely afflicted with a "bone on bone" case of osteoarthritis. Being a right handed man, the pain started to interfere with daily activities like writing, eating and dressing years ago. But he is a very accepting man who decided to just live with it. An occasional anti-inflammatory medication or acetaminophen was all that was needed to keep going. On one occasion, the pain in his wrist was so severe that he could not hold onto a fork and required a steroid injection - but this was far from a regular occurrence.

The lost vision, numbness, and headache you describe could be Migraine symptoms. They would not, however be symptoms that your body is telling you that you're getting a Migraine. By the time these symptoms occur in a Migraine, the Migraine has already started. Vision loss and numbness can occur during the second phase of a Migraine attack, the aura. The headache would be the third phase, the headache phase. You can read more about the possible phases of a Migraine attack and their potential symptoms in Anatomy of a Migraine .
Are you talking about total loss of vision - blindnes...
