I have had fibromyalgia for about 12 years or so now and was diagnosed with OA in my knees, right hip and lower back a couple of years ago. It is hard to tell though whether the pain is due to one or the other or even both! I really want some advice if possible about my knee. It doesn't hurt to touch or bend but when I stand up the pain is horrible and I stagger about for a couple of minutes then it gradually eases. The pain is at the back of the knee and it feels like it won't take my weight. I have to take one step at a time on stairs and slopes are a nightmare. I'm also having pain in my ankle and the top of the foot, it's okay walking the pain is worse when resting especially at night and often causes me not to be able to sleep. Sorry for droning on, but I can't face going to my gp ....again as she puts everything down to my fibromyalgia.
