I am 42 years of age. as a child i always suffered with hip pain which went undiagnosed. i am able to pop my left hip in and out. pain is unreal at night during the winter and sometimes my right hip is painful to the touch. i have suffered numerous slipped discs and have been diagnosed with degenerative discs in my lower back. daily activities due to this are restrictive. the newest problem with my back with the last few months is on awaking. mostly it can almost feel locked with pain. it takes 45 minutes to loosen it out and to loose most of the pain . i have problems with both my knees. my legs are not straight, they lean inwards at the knees. one previously used to pop in and out of place. the pain was awful.  i had camera inserted and cleaned up. and on awaking after surgery the first surgeon i met said i have arthritis but before i left the hospital the other surgeon after i told him what the first one said, told me not to mind him and there is noting more he can do for me, that it is wear and i am stuck with it. Im confused. now my knees are making it next to impossible to descend a stairs. other days they are not too bad. driving sets the pain off and walking after driving hurts and then trying to get back into a car afterwards is a problem,. even getting down from a footpath during this time is painful and extremely slow due to restricted movement presumably due to swelling. the newest is pains in toes on walking. i cant take much more of this. can anone tell me if they think the first surgeon may have been right. its hard to expect anyone to understand the extent of it especially if hours previously i may be able to complete most daily tasks then suddenly im unable to,
