Hi just introducing myself as a newbie to the forum.
Not sure what to say- I'm 51 and some days feel like 91. I've had hysterectomy and oopherectomy 7 years ago, poor biomechanics in legs , history of plantar fasciitis and poor driving position so knees go in independant directions.
Previous family carer so knees been working overtime for many years.
recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in one knee but also get stiff and achy in hips , other knee, ankles and spine varying degrees at various times. I'm on Naproxen twice a day for inflammatory arthritis.
Now I can concentrate on me and caring is in the past , I'm looking for hints and tips to control, reduce or learn to live with the aches and pains.
I joined a gym and have had physio but generally feel to clapped out to get started as very busy at work/home/dogs etc.
Looking for way forward and look forward to chatting with you.
