Hello,

Bone spurs (extra bits of bone, which feel like hard lumps, that form around the affected joint) are unfortunately a symptom of osteoarthritis that many people are impacted by.

Do you get bone spurs? If so, where?

Both shoulders and all my fingers. I have had surgery on both shoulders. My left shoulder is fine now but I severed a tendon in my right shoulder I am unable to extend my arm or lift it up. I've lost the ability to hold my hands out in supplication

I have got one on my left hip and cannot use it to climb the stairs now. My gp is hopeless never even sent me for an x ray. had arthritis for over 10 years was due for a hip replacement then got breast cancer in 2010 and with the tablets have been in agony since and now got hypercalceamia. Never go out anywhere as both hips occasionally just give way without notice.
