Just thought I would say hi. I am 48 years old and I was diagnosed with osteoA about 6 months ago and am just steadily getting worse. Eventually got an appointment with a specialist tomorrow. My doctor has told me not to expect much as I am overweight (just lost 3 stone but a bit to go yet) . Have tried all sorts of painkillers but none seem to work so just have to live with it. Nice to have found this forum with so many people in the same boat.
