    Hi Jo-ann - glad you have found us and welcome to the forum! There are lot of folks on here with OA so you will be in good company and everyone is really friendly. As you will see as you look around, we have the "Living with Arthritis" forum which is the best place to post specific questions as most people look there. We also have the "Chit-Chat" forum for general light-hearted chat and banter - this includes the "cafe" where there is usually someone to talk to - and where the virtual cakes are wonderful! Look forward to your posts. Love Tilly x
