Customer Question
Don't really know where to...
Don't really know where to begin I have known my body was changing health wise for several years I am 55 years old a woman and have worked hard all my life. I hurt from head to toe have had 2 knee replacements lower back and neck in the early 2000 knees in last 3 years. My neck and shoulder hurt so much I can't get comfortable and my hands they are steadily loosing grip and my feet toes growing sideways and just hurt I want to be active I still try and walk some but about cry by the time ovet back to my car. I have no endurance. Where or what kind of doctor do I need. A neurosurgeon is looking at neck but it's taken 3 months to get in. I feel like arthritis is eatin me alive.
