I want to see the GP yesterday and he diagnosed osteoarthritis ...
He advised strengthening exercises… I forgot to mention my painful spine at all… Only showed him my hands
In fact all he said was strengthening exercises and that's about it
Should I have been expecting a referral?
I'm 42… I think it's been hinting that it's possibly happening maybe in my hips from a few years ago when I was running…
Is there any reason to go back to the GP and see if there's anything else they can do for me? I'm not in enough pain to need painkillers
