My mother has RA in both knees and it kills me to see her struggle when she walks and try to get up from a sitting position!! I wish i could do something for her!!! She is now taking baby steps walking with a walker and physical therapy hurts her to bad!! I hate seeing her like this!!

Hi Cdp,

Are you sure it's Rheumatoid Arthritis and not Osteoarthritis? Either way, is she getting any help from her doctor, any pain management?

And if it is RA, I encourage you to post on our Rheumatoid Arthritis Community .

As Caprice said, she needs to be seen by an orthopedic surgeon and/or a Rheumatologist if she truly has RA and not OA. Then there are knee replacements that can be done which should end the pain.
