    Hello glitterfairy and welcome from me, too.

    Hip pain is not good. I've had two hip replacements due to my RA. If you've any specific questions just put them on the Living With Arthritis forum. People on here are very kind and helpful and I'm sure you'll get some answers.

    As for your husband - I don't think any of us understand other people's pain very well until/unless we've gone through something similar ourselves. I hate having to spell out the details of my pain but sometimes it's necessary. Does he ever come to doctor's appointments with you? Maybe he'd read some of Arthritis Care's leaflets if you downloaded them. ('Publications & Resources' at the top of the page.)

    Hell there glitterfairy :D

    Tis lovely to meet you and welcome you to our forums.

    Being in constant pain can be very isolating and that most of us can relate to.....your husband might be doing what mine does sometimes - 'If I ignore it, it will go away' :roll:

    Mine likes to 'fix' problems and when he can't easliy his head goes right in the sand.

    Do please come along in and join us. Chit chat is good for a laugh and chat about stuff to distract us and of course any issues/tips etc can be found on the living with arthritis thread.
