Your pain now may be unrelated... Or u could be developing subtle arthritic changes best seen on mri. ...Read more

Endless possibilities include an old healed rib fracture, osteochondroma, bone tumor, Paget's disease of bone, bone island, heterotopic ossification, lodged bullet or shrapnel (metalworking?), & countless others. CT scan may be like goin fishin ...Read more

You need to wear out more slowly, and grow cartilage more quickly. Glucosamine works, but for the wrist needs to be given through skin by cream, or by injection. Oral pills do not work except for knees. www.blatmanhealthandwellness.com. ...Read more
