Hi Everyone, I just joined the forum,would like to say hello.......I have impingement in both my hips......meaning I have bumps on the head of my femur which is causing it to not fit in the hip socket properly.
I am currently waiting to see a specialist to see how bad the damage and arthiritis is,but I know I will be heading for hip replacement at some point.
I also have pain in my left knee (Undiagnosed at the moment) and pain and stiffness in my hands and fingers.
I feel quite isolated and alone with all this and would like some support and friendship......it is quite scary not knowing what is going to happen.

Thanks for listening

Angilee

    Hi Angilee

    A warm welcome from me.

    Well you won't have to feel alone anymore. The people on here are very friendly. We try to support one another and give advice when needed.

    If you have questions regarding Arthritis it is best to post on the LWA as more people will see it there and answer you quickly.

    We also have the CChat Zone which tends to be more lighthearted.

    There is also a cafe which is lot of fun and there is always someone in there to chat to.

    There are also a lot of Threads that you might like to answer to.
    Well, there we go and you will never feel that you are alone with arthur as we call him.

    Hope to see you posting very soon

    Love Trish xxxx

    Hi Angilee and a big welcome from me too!

    As Trish has said, everyone here is really friendly and understanding so you don't need to feel as if you are on your own.

    I am a fairly new joiner to the forum and it has helped me so much - wouldn't be without it!

    Please do join in anywhere on the forum - you will be made very welcome.

    Love Tilly x

    Hello Angilee

    Such a beautiful name, Are you French?

    I can only add to what Trisher and Tilly said, WELCOME! You have come to the right place! I've been a member of this illustrious club for less than a month yet I feel so at home! You'll find everything you need; support, friendship, comfort laughter and much more.
    Take care. Whitey :D XX

    Sorry angilee, I missed this due to a rough patch. I can only second what the others have said: look around the forums and jump in! Not very many people look on this one, so please look at the other forums: we are mostly to be found on LWA and Chitchat. DD
