Was told 3 years ago, I've got a touch of arthritis in L hip. Has affected running style, now more of a shuffle & I find it easier to run on treadie than outdoors. Longest run for this year's GNR was 2 miles or so, hence my walking most of the way.

Mine is left big toe (confirmed last year) but right is showing symptoms now too. For me, it is about keeping joint warm. I take 1500mg of G&C every day and keep as active as possible, some days it really aches, some days it is really stiff, I always know its there though.

Got something to say?
