    I was told 2 years ago by my orthopedic surgeon that I have osteoarthritis in both knees.  He wants to do a total knee replacement on one knee.  I have put it off.  He has since diagnosed me with Carple Tunnel Syndrome and Ulnar nerve problems at both elbows.  In the past 2 years I continue to get worse.  I have extreme joint pain in all joints now, without swelling.  This pain last all day and at night I'm waking with this pain.  I recently went to a Rheumatologist and he suspects Rheumatoid Arthritis and is running all the blood work, x-rays, etc.  I'm waiting on my results.
