I am Victoria, I'm 25 and am married with a two year old son. I have had back and hip pain since I became pregnant with my son. Three years on it's now worse and I use crutches to get around on bad days. I have been given a diagnosis of osteoarthritis and am currently in a study on back and leg pain.
I'm having physiotherapy, where I'm essentially being taught basic pilates to strengthen my core muscles, and I've had an MRI scan but not had the results yet.
I was told when I was 17 that I had CFS and thought I was recovered, but I don't know how much overlap there is with the pain and tiredness I get now.
Oh well, that turned into a long ramble
