Afternoon all, I hope you are all as well as you can be and that all is well at Helpline Mansions.
Right, my thought, which followed from skezier's post, was this. Do the varying types of arthritis cause different kinds of damage to the same joints? I know, for example, that PA usually starts in the smaller joints (toes, fingers) so would the damage to those joints be different to RA damage of those joints? Are RA-affected hips damaged in the same way as OA-affected ones? I once read that PA tends to miss the hips - is that right or is it one sweeping generalisation too many? AS is another version of this pestilence: does that damage in the same way as OA or RA? That's lots of questions - sorry, but they all share the general theme. DD
Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben
