Hi, I'm Mike, almost 55, I was diagnosed with OA in march 2012, mainly on my right side of my body, wrist, shoulder, hip, knee and ankle. I don't get that much pain, occasionally my knee swells to twice it's normal size! But recently my hip is getting a bruise on it just at the top of the joint, slightly painful, but doesn't stop me from doing anything. It lasts for about 2 weeks, and that's it. I get them about every 3 months, mentioned it to my Dr, and was told that if it's not affecting my movement then nothing to worry about. Is this normal??
