There is absolutely no correlation between arthritic aging changes and pain. Arthritis limits mobility, but does not "cause" pain (although the structural anomaly may 'trigger' it). Arthritis is one issue, pain is quite another

This is absolute baloney. Tissue becomes inflamed around the arthritic joint and to the afflicted one becomes indistinguishable from the other. It is true some people have osteoarthritis limiting motion or strength without accompanying pain (my mother did after an accident, at an old age), but one should not generalize.

Interesting review of several osteoarthritis studies conducted on climbers.

Seems to conclude that there is no conclusion.

Do-it-yourself self-estem pills. Feel better about pain, and for cheap.

after several attempts at alleviating the effects of arthritic knees, I think I will try acupuncture.

How is it going old farts?

My arthritis flared up in my left hand two weeks ago and in the right a few days ago. Can't climb. Went skiing on the weekend, though. That was before my right hand got worst.

My right hand got so painful and swollen I can't lift a bottle of water. Over the counter pain killers don't work.

It is my fault because I stopped taking Humira, which kept my arthritis in check 90% of the time. I just wanted to try something different.

This is the longest arthritis outbreak I've ever had. Usually it lasts 3-5 days.

I took Humira again but it hasn't brought me any relieve. This medication only prevents the arthritic outbreaks.

I just took Oxycodone. Never tried it for the arthritic pain. Well, at least it will make me happy.

Sorry Moose. Interesting. Maybe the wet weather? My shoulder and bad toe have been acting up. We are headed up skiing either Sat or Sun for a few days. Hoping things won't hurt too much. I'm so sorry about how much you are afflicted. That sounds gruesome.

Thanks Susan. We are going to Minden on Wednesday.

Werner, I am on turmeric. The colloidal silver is not safe.

78 in a couple of months. I'm still on the vit-I regimen I described earlier, but I gave up the H acid tablets some time ago since I could not tell the difference if I took them. Yesterday I worked out on my horizontal ladder in the back yard - levers and traverses - and the day before I did laps on the large talus boulders constituting the rip rap at the nearby Lake Pueblo dam. Great for dynamic balance and varied use of the legs and thighs. Not much change in the arthritic shoulders, but no noticeable deterioration either. Still pretty damn strong for my age.

I highly recommend bodyweight exercises for aging men. I've been at them for 60 years and have found no substitute for maintaining/gaining strength, including yoga, pilates, etc. Men, stay strong as you journey into old age . . . it may not keep you alive any longer but you will not go willing into that good night.

I been taking it (colloidal silver) for 20 years.

Is that your secret weapon, Werner?

I am going to try it. I want to be just like you!

The Turmeric alone has been more than sufficient for me. It does have a 30-60 day ramp up, but once saturated I went from 6-12 advils a day to zero and haven't taken one in four years or so.

Healyje, what exactly have you been using? What dosage? There are so many products.

Appreciate your help.

Great! Keep it up.

Report back in 2029, please.


I should have made a distinction between staying in good climbing condition and staying strong. They are not necessarily the same.

71 and right hip said to need artificial....it was probably all that talus hopping down (ala Doug Robinson). I recommend treadmill set at 15% up (780' vert/mi) and you don't have to come down. Either that or hire a chopper to bring you down, like the rich guys. But, the good news for me is that biking seems to make it better. Go figure.

Is it the beers that make you feel 20 years younger or the shoes :)

Hey John, any chance you might be a worm, a fly, or perhaps just yeast? Or maybe a flying yeast worm? 'Cause if so, those ibu's are gonna extend your life by 15% or so. http://www.examiner.com/article/texas-a-m-research-shows-ibuprofen-extends-life
