Hi there i am a 35yr man that was told from my doctor i have RA my fingers stiffing all the time it dont matter what time of day. I told my doctor couple weeks ago my shoulder is popping in and out and it was hard for me to put weight on my feet because both of my knees and hips hurt. So she order a x-ray and it said nothing was wrong no arthritis in any of it. But the doctor i had before this one did a MRI on my lower back and hips and said there is arthritis in them but no doctor can tell me why my lower back is black and blue if anyone could tell me what they think i would like that thanks BenView Thread
