    Hello Ron

    You certainly have a lot to contend with at the moment, but glad to have you on board.

    You should find a lot of friends on here with similar probs, but with regards to the Stroke, that is really bad luck. In that instance the Occupational Therapist is the only link betweek Arthritis and Stroke, because she is there to help us get about, invent ways of coping in the home and getting about issues.

    I do hope you don't have too many problems that way.
    With regards to the problems with your arms and shoulders, was the name Polymyalgeria Rheumatics mentioned maybe?
    I have that problem and one or two others have it too. There is another Web Site for this problem.

    If you go on to the Living with Arthritis site, we can have a longer chat aout it.
