I have arthritis in my hips and long claw like bone spurs going down my spine. This not something that comes from a sedentary lifestyle; it is genetic. The arthritis is like knives being jammed in my hips every morning. How would you like to wake up to that every morning? I was excersizing by riding my bicycle 7 miles a day and swimming 1/2 a mile a day until I woke up one day and it felt like someone was jamming a 6" boning knife in my hips

Am wondering if you know whether your exercise routinm aggravated your
(as the insurance folk call it) "pre-existing conditions"?

As for anyone else who might know-
As for exercise, how much is too much? We've all heard of those who run, etc who later in life are struck down with arthritis in the knees.
I'm wondering about the risks taken in my exercise routine. Perhaps I should switch to something else before it's too late.
