    Dear Kellie1981,

    Welcome to Chat to Helplines. Sorry to hear about this painful arthritis and that things have not helped yet. If you feel like having a chat about what's happening you are welcome to give us a ring. It can be a help sometimes to go through what you've done so far and work out what might be next.

    But keeping moving, trying to find the right balance of painkillers and daily activity, and eating sensibly to keep weight down are all key points. If you are getting frustrated with how hard it's been, then that's a good time to have a chat.

    I hope we can help further.

    all the best

    Guy
