Hello all :smile::smile:

I have been in pain for about 6 years now-it all started in my left shoulder and collar bone gradually then got really bad and I could hardly move it. I have a larger bone at the end of my collar bone. Then this all progressed when I started getting pain in my neck, jaw (diagnosed with TMJ problems), back, knees, elbows, hands, feet, basically nearly all over my body.

I have just had a diagnostic steroid injection to see if it helps and apparently it indicates a inflammation arthritis if it helps which so far so good and this is the best I have been for many years-I am also on tramadol pain killers.

Well thats my story-well the quick version xxx

    Hello again Purplesparkle!

    I have just posted on your thread on the "helpline" forum but thought I would say hello here too.

    If you re-post on the "living with arthritis" forum, you will probably get more replies as most of look there regularly.
