What does end stage or stage 4 osteoarthritis really mean? I know it means pain, but does it cause more problems? Thanks I have a lot of things to think about.

I heard of stage 4 and they said it is very painful .I have very severe OA on my whole right side from my hip to my feet I was in a lot of pain for 8months before I was dignoised with OA I am finally
finding some relieve with rest and taking C&G and a D vitamin every day and heating pad does help lot and no white products all
wheat or whole grains it does show a big difference.

Stage 4 cancer means more than Stage 4 OA because than there is a risk that it could be terminal. Stage 4 OA just means that your OA is advanced. My arthritis causes very severe pain.
