I am limited in when, and how I get around. Must be during the day. Evening is much worse for some reason. I have osteoarthritis in all of my joints. My knees, hips, hands, and ankle are the worst. I have had joint replacement surgery on my right thumb, it still bothers me. I am very afraid as I get older I will need more replacements, and that's something I don't look forward to.
