Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHer! It would be very common at 70 years old to experience arthritis. Have you been to your doctor about this? If you don't think it is arthritis...can you provide any further explanation (i.e. what your doctor has told you and/or any other underlying issue that may have caused the pain such as trauma)?
