how bad could arthris get ?!

Be careful not to take too much tylenol or any type of pain reliever. Generally a Tylenol is 250 mg.don't take more than 4 gms a day. This is more than 16 pills a day. Or if you take Ibuprofen not more than 2 ms. Each pill is about 100 mg (check the bottle).

The reason is liver toxicity. Don't think that you can't hurt yourself. You can. Also, consult your doctor if you have more than 2 drinks of alcohol a day. It is too hard on your liver. to deal with it? Try exercise. Despite how bad it feels it is good for you. Also try losing weight if you are over weight. Alternating cold and warm compresses helps. Hot tubs help. Avoid being outside on cold days.

Just remember activity is much better than not moving to avoid pain. It only gets works.

Are you sure you have athritis. It could get really bad, as you age if left untreated. I think you should see your doctor.

ARE YOU REALLY SURE YOU HAVE ARTHRITIS? Don't be too quick to diagnose yourself. It might be something else.
It depends on the type of arthritis. Some types of arthritis are worse than others. Rheumatoid arthritis is probably one of the worst. People can get that in their teens. If you have arthritis in your knees, then you might consider taking glucosamine supplements to help grow the cartilage back.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that you can also use a the sting from a honeybee to temporarily relieve arthritic inflammation in your knees.
Start wearing kneepads

it can get extremely bad. My stepdad has it in his knees. My mom's going to get him knees replacements when we have enough money. There's nothing too much u can do for the pain. Ask ur doctor for the strongest stuff u can afford. Because all i can tell u is that it get's worst.

cool water help like in the pool hang them over the side and soke them for 10 min.
Arthritis can cripple you. It depends on which kind you have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. steroids like prednisone can relieve the pain, but the side effects are horrible. I'm getting a new drug called synvisc which is injected into my knees; I've had 3 shots so far and 3 more to go. You should see a rheumatologist and get a diagnosis and a treatment plan. Good Luck
Try a natural remedy and see if that helps
it can get so bad you cant get out of bed,,i no belive me
