Yep, I've reached the age where my vocabulary revolves around learning words ending in -itis, -oscopy, or -ectomy.
My condition was, apparently, brought on by my job, which involves standing for eight hours a day. Well, that and being too ding-dang fat.
USA Weekend says I should start taking glucosamine and lose weight. Yes, I'm trying. Mind you, the pain is certainly tolerable at this early juncture, but I am getting a sneak preview of what the future holds and Bette Davis was right:
"Old age is no place for sissies."
Anybody have any home remedies?
