knee, back, and shoulder impingement

I'm so frustrated. Everytime I try to do things to have a quality of life I get so back tracked it isn't even funny. I have a shoulder impingement that shouldn't be so painful, 2 knees that have osteo and a back that is hurting like a black scalded kettle. I'm so angry about this all. I know we should make peace with our bodies and minds.
I've done p.t. I've not done p.t. I've rested I've not rested..........I've done tons of activity and not tons of activity. I'm working on losing weight and hoping this will help me.

Anybody else with any of this garbage?!

thanks

Hello.

I have been managing moderate to severe chronic pain for over 35 years. I understand fully what you are living with.

If you have seen all the right doctors - a good spinal specialist, an orthopedic specialist and/or rheumotologist, and a good pain management specialist, then it may be a matter of acceptance. This is hard to do, I know, but it helps to deal with the pain and impaired functionality.

Keep doing your research. There are many sites on the internet with good information about your conditions.

Keep moving as much as possible. It may hurt, but it helps in the long run.

Keep a positive attitude. That may be the hardest part, but it is essential for you mental and physical health.

I pray you can get answers and relief soon.
