    Oh Val I'm so sorry you feel so awful! I am sure that stress has a bad effect on the arthur - and also makes you more likely to go down with anything that's going around. And the frustration of not being able to do the things you planned just makes everything feel worse don't you think?

    Sounds as if you are doing the only thing you can at the moment - which is to rest as much as you can until things settle down again.

    Thinking of you Val - and sending lots of "get well soon" vibes.

    Love Tilly x

    Awww Val I am so sorry, I have noticed that sods law takes over when I have plans, and my joints go worse, I sometimes blame my self for expecting it.
    Like you say all the worry has not done you any good, you try and rest, Ihope it improves and you have a good weekend.
    sending Loads of hugs (((((((())))))

    I know how frustrating it can be Val. When I get that frustrated my wonderful hubby always reminds me that, being frustrated just wastes energy and makes me feel even worse! It sounds as if you don't have any option but to rest for now Val, frustrating though it is for you. I think that mental rest is important too, so maybe, if you can, have a good scream and shout to get it out of your system, and then tell yourself that you are going to accept the situation for what it is and do everything you can to rest up for the next couple of days. I know it's easier said that done and I'm the world's worst at relaxing but I don't know what else to suggest.

    Hopefully the pain meds will give you a bit of relief - and may make you sleepy so you might get some rest that way?

    Chin-up chuck!

    Oh, Val.......how annoying to have arther disrupting all the plans you made. Trouble is, he won't let us answer him back!

    I'm sure it's happened to all of us at some time, but knowing that doesn't make it any easier for you. I hope you can do a scream and shout and have a hissy fit, or break a few old cups or something (very satisfying).

    Hope it all passes off before you need to work that overtime later in the week. Do keep on with the pain meds even if you begin to feel better before then.

    Love

    I have had OA since mid twenties. It affects my hips and knees. I had a THR on the left aged 30 and now have a resurface-replacement on the right - done May 2010.

    Hi Val and Hileena,
    There is a cold doing the rounds, plus a 24 hour sickness bug.
    So wrap up warm and although it's a pain rest up as much as you can.

    Sorry,
