Hello,just thought I would drop by and say hello.

I am 54 and have OA in both knees,well that is to say that is what my doctor thought it was when I saw her last week but I am waiting the results of blood tests and x-rays. The doctor put me on ARTHROTEC 3 times a day and it has helped.
I also have very sore feet,wrists and both shoulders but what is bothering me more than anything is the feeling of total tiredness.

I should probably post on the LWA board but just wanted to say hello first.
bye for now K.

    Hi katie23 and welcome to the forums. You will probably get a better response on LWA, more people look in on there than here. I can't help on the OA front, I have PA and take some fairly strong meds but I do understand the tiredness part very well indeed. I won't think about when I last had some energy - I can remember it clearly and it's distressing so it's best to ignore it! :D Have a look round and I hope to see you posting soon. I wish you well.
