Hi Maureen,I have had terrible pain in my knees, elbows, and now (in the last few months) my left hip. My stupid doctors at Kaiser tell me I have "patellar tendonitis" in my knees, (although they have never proved this and it has been goin on for 12 years.....), "you must have pulled a muscle in your elbow"....(yeah, right), and so far, I have not been in to see them about my hip, but I'm sure I know what they're going to say. I have an appt. for a physical in July, and I am going to give them hell if they don't give me some straight answers. By the way, I am "D" type, and very physically active, but am only 29, and God forbid the Dr's would tell me that I have arthritis of ANY KIND. They just don't seem to get it, but that really doesn't surprise me.
