I am a 49 y/o female, 5/4" tall and 145lbs. I weighed 250 lbs until 8 years ago when I had bariatric surgery. Type II Diabetes and Arthritis run in my family. I have been on medication for 10+years for severehypothyroidism. I've had symptoms of the Arthritis for the last several years in my knuckles. Recently, I have moved from Florida to Indiana and notice that I have pain and stiffness mostly in my left leg and knee, mostly when I wake up and shortly after. My knuckles are also more painful.... I am wondering if it is more likely from the Arthritis, Hypothyroidism, Diabetes or just plain being 49???? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!
