    Hello, it's nice to meet you and I am sorry you have had to find us. Rest assured we understand as we are all affected by arthritis in all its flavours and guises - I have psoriatic and osteo so have a creaky foot in both camps; what do you have and what meds are you taking?

    Finding your way around a new forum is never easy, not many people look in on this part of the forum (it's also quiet due to the bank holiday) so please repost on the Living with Arthritis board as more read that. DD

    Hello Ann and welcome from me, too.

    You've come to the right place. We all understand the difficulties - physical and emotional - of living with arthritis and a problem shared is, as they say, a problem halved. So do, please, join in anywhere on any thread. We're very friendly on here and always glad to have someone else on board :D
