Hello Unsure, it's nice to meet you and I am pleased you have joined us. It's true, there aren't that many blokes around here and my thinking is that that is for two reasons.

1. Arthritis appears to affect more females than males.

2. Men deal with health matters in a very different way to women.

I have two sorts, an auto-immune and the joint damage that caused has led to OA in my knees and ankles. On reflection the auto-immune (PsA) shouldn't have come as such a surprise as I spent my childhood itching, scratching and wheezing but hey-ho, that's how things go I suppose. I hope we will be able to offer you encouragement, information and support. I wish you well. DD
Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben
