    Hi Valval,

    I am glad to hear you got your results back and at least you know a bit more about what is going on. It would be best to double check with your GP what you now need to be taking as you still may need to take something to manage your pain and help bring the inflammation down. It may also be worth asking for a referral to a physiotherapist if you haven’t done so already? As this will help maintain your muscle strength and keep your range of motion.

    We also have some information that may be helpful on the following link, in particular the ‘Living with osteoarthritis’, ‘Exercise and arthritis’, ‘Healthy eating and arthritis’ and ‘Coping with Pain’ booklets will be worth looking at : http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/PublicationsandResources/Listedbytype/Booklets

    Best wishes
