Already posted a few comments only just found the site. :D I have Gouty Arthritis which is now under control, Doctor thinks I also have OA and currently been tested for PA in my knees :(
Struggling with work at the moment in a great deal of pain. My friends keep saying "you can see the pain in your face!" and i have been told on a few occasions "that's an old persons disease!" :!:

looking forward to talking to people that understand what its like

    Hi Lorica

    Welcome to the site. Do join us on the other forums. We all try to support and help each other. :D

    That is a helpful remark from your friends, isn't it? :roll: I bet that cheers you up no end :roll: :lol: Oh, yes, "the old person's disease" - if only they knew. :lol: Do you inform these people that babes can unfortunately be diagnosed with arthritis?

    Look forward to seeing your name around the site,

    Look after yourelf,
