 Does anyone have arthritis?  What were your signs/symptoms?  I'm calling a doc today....my hands  have been throbbing to the point I can't sleep at night for a few days.  I had this pain before but never to this extent.

 Oh thanks maybe I'll try that!  Do you know if it has caffeinne in it like the other excedrins?  I don't like to have too much caf in my system.  I can't get an appt til Sept 20th, but since my mom is a patient already she's trying to ask the doc for advice for me bc my hands hurt so badly I can't sleep!  I hurts so much to type!

I have not been diagnosed but I really think I am getting it in my right hip and knee. I've been having some pain in my knee for the last couple of years.

I have it in my hips and back. I was taking ibuprofen for it. But I'm on other meds now, so I can only take Tylenol, which doesn't help much.
