Just wanted to say hi, I am new to this but just feel like it would be nice to speak to anyone who is a similar age with arthritis as have never spoke to anyone my own age who understands

    Hi Shazza , welcome to the forum, and sorry you had to find us as we say on here. It tends to be a bit quiet at the weekend, but have a read around and you'll find others in a similar situation to you. I'm in the other camp on both counts being much older than you and having OA rather than RA so can't help I'm afraid.

    Hi Shazza. I've had RA since I was 15 but I'm way past your age now. However, we do have younger people on here with RA (plus assorted other variations of arthritis) . Try reposting on the Living With Arthritis forum for more replies. And good luck. I hope you find what you're looking for.

    Hello Shazza, and welcome - it`s nice to `meet `you.

    I have RA too, but like SW, I`m a lot older than you. Do keep posting so we can get to know you better.
