    Hi Joanne and welcome to the foru :) . I have RA plus the added extra of OA :roll: I'm sure your diagnosis must have come as quite a shock but we're all here to help you come to terms with it. Any questions you have, just ask away and we'll try to answer. (Living With Arthritis is better for that as you'll get more answers.) Rants are also occasionally necessary – we're used to them too :lol: And we also have a bit of fun on Chit Chat. Please join in anywhere and welcome on board.

    Hi Joanne
    Welcome to the forum
    You'll get lots of help on here but as SW {I think} said Living with Arthritis is the best forum to get answers from.
    I have OA in multiple joints, osteoporosis, kyphoscoliosis and spinal stenosis :) I'm collecting them :lol:

    Look forward to hearing from you
