Osteoarthritis in my ankle - Newly Diagnosed
Hi, I'm generally a fit and healthy 44 year old (or at least thought I was) who has recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my ankle after suffering months of pain. Over the past couple of weeks I've started to experience pain in both my neck and knee (same side as ankle) which is giving me limited moving ability. Ive managed to get the pain and swelling under control with my Ankle by doing flat walking and drinking more water along with taking strong ibuprofens. However I'm now concerned that I may have arthritis in these two new areas after doing some research. I haven't found much on ankles but it seems to be quite common in knees.
Is it common that once you have osteoarthritis in one area you're more than likely to get it elsewhere?
