I'm 64 yrs old and have always.been active, there were some short periods where I wasn't exercising ad much, but I've always been able to resume my exercise. This is affecting my mobility. My dr says its osteoarthritis, but that was 5 yrs ago. I've never had this much pain. My mobility has went from like 90% to 20%.
Perhaps you need to discuss osteoarthritis treatments with your doctor vis a vie a medication. The muscle spasms may require a muscle relaxant which you can speak to your doctor about. You should see a rheumatologist for the osteoarthritis med, and possibly they will give you a muscle relaxant. There are mild and strong ones... no need to worry you will end up on carisoprodol, but you may. Ask and be your own advocate. Informed and Involved in your care. You must step up your voice. Good luck and low pain to you. Take care and be well.
