I have trouble cleaning my house and doing windows. Also I have trouble sometimes
just standing and cooking. I have just regular arthritis not the biggies. But it's in my
feet up to my lower back, and my fingers up to the top of my arms. I am 78 but I
would like to do my chores without feeling worse when I finish a job.
