I'm 55 and have had osto for about 10 years. I use a cream called Valtaren works really great. I put it on first thing in the morning before I go to the gym. I cycle, yoga body pump and weights. If I don't put it on I am in so much pain. I have osto in my feet, elbows, hands, knees and hips so I really need the cream. I can feel it getting worse especilly in my hands, they really hurt. Some of my fingers are not so pretty. My grandmother had osto. Oh I also take Celebrex. Tried to go off and was in so much pain, I went back on. Thanks for the time, KarenView Thread
