My name is Fiona. My head is still in a haze. Got told yesterday I may have OA but diagnosis not definite yet. It could just be my broken toe operated on four months still healing. (I am post menopausal).

I have been in almost permanent pain for the last four months and found no one has really taken it seriously because "it is just a toe". I told people to imagine having a nagging toothache for four months. How would they feel then? Pain is pain.

I have now found out I can see a Podiatrist on the NHS and have self referred especially for insoles and advice.

Still it is great to have found this site.

    Hi Fiona

    Welcome to the site. Look forward to seeing you posting on the other zones. This is a brilliant site and we all try to help and support one another. I have been here for three years - it can become addictive, but harmless, just a warning. :lol::lol:

    Look after yourself especially that toe,

    hi fiona it hard to get people to understand pain because they can not see it but that does not make it feel any better to you hope you get the help you need would have thought hospital or doc would have refured you so you could have got insoles getting information about these things hard .
