Hi, my name is mel and I am 24. I live just outside of chester I was diagnosed with OA when I was 23 after 7 years of complaining to the doctors that my hips are really painful and always clicking!
Now I have pain killers to help and take tramadol, paracetamol and diclofenic. Although after taking these I am still In pain so they aren't a massive help.
I have 2 children aged 2 and 4 which on bad days I feel absolutely awful that I can't do much with them. I am dreading things getting worse. I find that after Doing my physio exercises that I am meant to do twice a day. I am in agony the next day or so which means I am unable to do my physio as much as I am supposed to.
