    Hi Cat and Nikki

    Welcome to the forum. I am sorry to hear about Nikki. She has got quite a diagnosis there. I do hope that she has a sympathetic doctor. I presume she is on painkillers and anti inflams...... Look forward to hearing more from you both on the other zones. More people hang out on the Living with Arthritis and ChitChat zone. If Nikki wishes to chat to someone, the helpline number is at the top left hand corner of the screen. Many of us on here have been helped tremenduously by calling that number.

    Look after each other,

    Elna x
