Hi I'm a newbie, diagnosed 6 years ago with slight OA in the hips at 48 and just had a review to find its significantly worsened (which I guessed owing to the increase in pain and stiffness). I've found the website here really helpful and am about to start physio. Any tips on keeping the spirits up and pain management very gratefully received. I'm currently on some pain relief but wondered about AIDS like warming pads etc and whether people find them helpful. :bouncing-ball:
Thanks very much.
