So your joints ache. Now what?
If you have joint pain, you may have a joint condition—like arthritis—that can be treated. It's important to find out so you can take steps to manage your symptoms and prevent further damage.
How joints work?
A joint is the space between two bones. For joint movement to be smooth and flexible, you need a layer of shock-absorption comprised of cartilage and synovial fluid. As some people age, their cartilage layer can become thin and frayed over time. When this occurs, joints may start to feel stiff, and movement may become difficult and uncomfortable. At first, the cartilage becomes rough, but it can deteriorate to the point where the bones begin to rub against each other. The bones may even begin to form lumps. All of these stages can cause pain.
So what is arthritis anyway?
That’s a tough one. 'Arthritis' can cause pain, swelling, and limited movement in joints and connective tissue. Approximately 50 million Americans have some form of arthritis. Arthritis is not just a disease of older Americans; 300,000 children have arthritis, and 2/3 of adult sufferers are under the age of 65. Arthritis is not a single disease – there are many types. The most common type is described next.
The most common type of arthritis: Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis also known as degenerative joint disease or 'wear-and-tear' arthritis, is the most common form of arthritis, affecting over 27 million Americans. Osteoarthritis occurs when joint cartilage and other connective tissue breaks down, causing pain and stiffness and hampering physical movement. It tends to affect commonly used joints such as the knees, hips, spine, and hands and is associated with risk factors such as age, obesity, trauma, overuse, and genetics. While Osteoarthritis can be effectively managed, there is no cure.
What are some common signs of arthritis?
Osteoarthritis is characterized by the following traits:
- Joint pain and stiffness.
- Swelling of the joints.
- Grinding or crunching sound with joint movement.
- Loss of joint function.
This is not a complete list of all possible symptoms.
If you think you may be experiencing signs of arthritis, consult your doctor. You can start protecting your joints by doing any of the following:
- Lose weight if you are overweight.
- Exercise daily – this may include aquatic, land-based resistance, aerobic, strengthened, and range of motion exercises.
- Avoid repetitive motions and pacing of activities.
- Adjust furniture to avoid problematic motions.
- Use appropriate splints, braces, insoles, footwear or walking aids if needed.
In 1879, McNeil was founded when Robert McNeil opened McNeil Pharmacy in Philadelphia, where he manufactured and sold medications to hospitals and doctors throughout the city. Johnson & Johnson acquired McNeil Laboratories in 1959 and the following year, TYLENOL was approved for sale without a prescription. In 1975 the TYLENOL line of products became the 5th best-selling brand of analgesic in the U.S. Today, TYLENOL is the #1 doctor recommended of pain reliever.*

Instead, I choose to just take the top of the pain off and live with low to mid level pain. I could have chosen to take aspirin or motrin, but since I have to take something every day, these are hard on my stomach. I take Tylenol because it doesn't bother my stomach, and it actually works better for me than aspirin or motrin anyway. You have to follow the dosage instructions for Tylenol because taking too much can cause liver damage. In fact, I only take two tablets twice a day, not three times, for this reason. There are very bad days, though, when I will take the maximum allowed, and while I won't be pain free, the Tylenol will help get it down into tolerable levels.
I've got to admit that I have tried the store-brand version of this, but it doesn't quite do what the Tylenol brand does. Also, an article on WEB MD recently said that the best and safest thing to take for arthritis was the ingredient in Tylenol--acetaminophen, either the extra-strength four times a day, or the arthritis-strength three times a day.
the only tablet form of pain relief I can use becuse I react to all others.I'm very thankful
to Amazon for carrying them and other things I can't find in stores.
right ankle. I have been on Tylenol for over 25 years; and Tylenol arthritis since it came out on the market.
Tylenol must be taken as directed; I take two every 8 hours. I have never taken more that 4 a day. Also,
its important not to drink alcoholic beverages and take Tylenol. I dont drink, so this is not a problem. If I
do take a drink; which was about two years ago at a party. I did not take my dosage of Tylenol Arthritis.
This is a great low cost pain reliever that I cannot live without.
On the other hand my wife uses it occasionally and she says it suits her well but she doesn't suffer from Insomnia
