Hi, this is my first post to say hello.

I've not been diagnosed with anything yet, although I am experiencing pain in most of my joints. I'm waiting to see the doctor (again) next week and am hoping to maybe get some answers or a referral.

I was once reasonably fit and ran regularly. Now, I have pain in both ankles, shoulder, thighs and fingers and toes. My feet ache all the time, it feels like I've been walking all day in bad fitting shoes. The pain over the last few weeks has gotten worse, hence the doctors appointment.

I'll keep you posted.

    Welcome to Arthritis Care Forums, Broadchurchfan, from the moderation team, (I too am a huge fan of Broadchurch :) ).

    I am very sorry to hear you are in pain in so many joints. I very much hope your next visit to the Dr helps you on the way to getting a diagnosis or a referral to someone who can.

    I don’t know whether you have had a look at any of the Arthritis Care publications? If you haven’t this one might be particularly relevant to you at the moment:

    I look forward to seeing you posting on the boards and hope you’ll let us know how you get on.

    Best wishes,

    Ellen

    Hello and welcome from me, too. (Yup, I enjoyed Broadchurch too :D ). I'm sorry you're having so much pain and I do hope the doc can help. In the meantime you might find some of the stuff on the grey menu near the top helpful. I hope so.
