    Dear Val

    Sorry to hear you are having a difficult time. When you have pain on certain types of chair are they fairly low, by that I mean does your bottom end up being lower than your knees when you sit down? If so it may be a good idea to make sure that you sit on chairs that are high enough to allow your hip to be at the same level as your knees or higher. You may also be getting what is called referred pain from your knees.

    I'm sure that if you post this query on the Living with Arthritis Forum others may offer some other explanations based on their experiences.

    If you need to talk to us please give us a call.

    Best wishes

    Simona
