I am 58 yrs old. I have been doing cardio exercies for more than 20 years. Last three years I have increased weithg training. I am used to running about once a week. I do other cardio machine at high intesity for about 30 minutes daily.

I have started pain in ankle, knee( slighly high intesity) and neck,left wrist(low intesity).

I ran yesterday for about 45 mintutes at low pace (5.2 m/hour) and did not feel pain in knees or ankles afterwards. I am surprised. Do I have arthritis that is just beginning.

Usually I feel little pain in right ankle and kness climbing up but now it had started climbing up or down. But after yesterdays run, I feel little sore but very little pain.

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health Forum.

The history and the symptoms described indicate the onset of musculoskeletal pain which most commonly could be due to a combination of arthritis and tendinitis.

You might consider to consult your doctor or a physiotherapist for a physical examination for definitive diagnosis.

I hope this helps.
