I've been reading through some of the threads on this forum and I'm really pleased I've found it! I was told on Monday that I have a form of Arthur but more tests are required to find out which of the many forms I have. So it's really early days for me. Compared to the difficulties some of you guys face, I'm feeling rather humble to be honest, as I only have one knee affected (at the moment). But it's still a shock isn't it! I'm trying to focus on the things I can do rather than the things I can't but it's hard of course. I'm really glad I've found you though.

    One knee is still one too many. Welcome and I am glad you found us. It took me 13 years - mind you lacking a computer didn't help! :smile: This is a wonderful place for information and support: LWA is the drugs/treatment/side effects questions etc as well as a place to rant, the rest are self-explanatory. I hope you enjoy looking round and that you learn some useful stuff! DD

    Hi susie,
    Welcome from me too, the forum is a great place for all sorts of things, gaining information, getting suggestions and advice, moaning and knowing that some one is 'listening'.
    Hope today your knee isnt too bad, you seem to be coping very well with your diagnosis, better than i did any way! :grin:
