Hello - joined today
Just joined and look forward to receiving lots of good advice. I have had osteoarthritis since my late 20's, started with neck ache but was told it was also in my hands. I was also told that one of the discs in my spine between the shoulders was crushed. The doctor asked if I had been in a car accident - which I hadn't. I am now 68 and have pain all over, ankles, knees, hips, spine, hands,shoulders and neck. I am unable to take ibuprofen as it affects my stomach even with tablets to prevent this happening. I would love to hear how others go on with the same symptoms with regard to pain relief and entitlement to any benefits. I have been told I should not lift anything nor press down on anything.
