Hello :D

I have been poorly for nearly a year now and am feeling pretty confused as to what is going on with my body. No real answers from the "specialist" or the GP :?: Negative RF, stiff, achy and tired all the time, sometimes so bad I can hardly move, finding it harder to walk each week. Taking 600mg Etodolac daily. Not really doing much but takes the edge off during the day. Working full time for myself in a pretty physical job and starting to feel overwhelmed.

I am pretty sure this is similar for a lot of people on the site, so I thought I would join and share my story :)

Blessed Be

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Sorry you've had to find us though.

    You will get loads of advice from people who know on here and loads of laughs too!

    I am still rather new here. I have suffered back pain for 17yrs now but was only diagnosed with OA of the spine in Aug 09.

    From what i have learnt, the meds do only take the edge off, i don't think any of us actually get a pain free day.

    I still work full time in a physical job also and sometimes it just seems too much effort but i am trying to go on as long as i can. Not everyday is like that, sometimes a feel really positive when i finish work as i have achieved a physical job despite my problems.

    I'm sure someone with more knowledge than me will be along soon.

    Looking forward to your posts.
