Osteoarthritis

Lots of people ask me why I'm in pain. I tell them that I have "osteoarthritis" and they go, "Oh." I get the feeling that they don't quite understand exactly what OA is. While I was on the Celebrex web site, I found a very useful page that explains most of what OA is all about, and why it causes pain. Maybe this will help people understand at least some of my pain.

Oh, by the way, I have very severe osteoarthritis in my right ankle, as well as severe diffuse osteopenia.
