I am not able to do any house work, shopping (groceries), or any normal activities. I live in an upstairs apartment and have a horrible time going up, if I go anywhere I have to sit immediately. Im in b constant pain. I try to excersise every morning but soon feel pain and forces me to stop. I feel that my Severe Osteoarthritis is getting worth because is now in my upper body.
