Can low water intake cause atheritic symptoms

hey,
 
Im having lots of joint pain recently, my knee has two or three large oestophytes which im having surgery for in two weeks, but my elbows, wrists and shoulders are still giving me grief. Ive been putting it down to the colder climate.
 
I did a quick google for atheritis in young people, and someone was suggesting that if the body is dehydrated then ahteritic symptoms can come about. I thinking about it, my water intake has been poor as its so cold here.
 
Coincedence? or is the guy who posted that taking some truth?

    Not sure how dehydration plays into it, but I'd imagine you're too young for osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis would present similar symptoms bilaterally (i.e both elbows, both knees etc) with accompanying swelling and inflammatory signs.
     
    IMO of course. What happens if you jack your water intake up for a few days?

    Im on it now mate, i only read this today so increasing water from today, ive neglected it badly. I need to increase water for the normal reasons to of course.
     
    My left knee has the oestephytes which i guess means its atheritic now, the Mri scan showed it to be in a pretty bad way.
     
    My left wrist is the worst, really painfaul to move, feels like it needs to crack all the time. Elbows are sore when lifting, and shoulders hurt when trying to move my arms first thing im the mornings. left knee is a mixed bag, some weeks nothing, other weeks pain to walk.
     
    whats the difference between rheumotoid, and oesto atheritis?
     
    Im going to start on the joint supplemtnets again, CK told me somthing to take which i have forgotten now. Docs recommeneded artostop which seems to just be the usual stuff!

    Osteoarthritis is your 'wear and tear' arthritis, in short the cartilage between moving bones (e.g your tibia and femur, or femur and hip socket) wears away with repetitive use and you begin to get bone-on-bone contact = painful! Generally it's more common in the older population but can happen with younger people, especially if there's been previous cartilage injuries or similar.
     
    Rheumatoid arthritis is more systemic, my knowledge is less clear, but I think it's a case of having 'episodes' of joint inflammation, swelling, redness etc. You'd have it in both respective joints (i.e left and right) and it'd come and go.

    Ok thanks mate, well i guess that osteo cannot be cured with water intake then ;) But rheumotoid symptoms could arise from dehydration i guess...
     
    Anyway i was just interest tbh, i have always had joint problems, but just never ever this bad. Maybe ill do a week of 3-4L of water and report back.

    On a related note. If I have drank a lot over a weekend I can be very stiff early in the week and extremely injury prone.

    hey dude, are you saying that the dehydration from drinking could be related? Sorry just checking :)

    Yes that's what I'm saying. I'm talking about severe dehydration from a 3 day bender!

    i guess the joints can dry out then, not sure of the science behind any of this.
     
    Will report back in a week after much increased water intake!

    Quick update,
     
    There is nothing scientific about anything i did here btw, i have just increased my level of water intake to a decent level, but nothing over the top, and my wrist and elbow pain has gone away. Now i have no idea if this is conincedence or what but if you get sore stiff joints, increase your water intake...its pratically free, and it might help.....
     
    who knows.
