I have osteoarthritis in both knees, both hips my spine, my shoulder and the beginnings of it in my hands but I am determined to defy it, even though the pain. Love, Light and Peace to everyone. Stay Safe.

    Hi Albert,

    Welcome to the Versus Arthritis forum.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're a long-term OA sufferer and that it's continuing to spread.

    There's a huge amount of information regarding OA on our website which may be of interest/use to you

    Also, if you feel at any time that it would be useful to talk to our helpline contact details are as follows:

    You can call our free Helpline on 0800 5200 520, or email (Mon - Fri 9:00am – 6:00pm).

    I hope you find the forum beneficial and others who are similarly determined to defy it share their experiences with you.

    Best wishes

    Hello, I am shielding not because of my OA but because of my other one, psoriatic arthritis. Only another three months to go - perhaps! 😁 It's nice to meet you and I hope you find the forum to be of interest. DD

    Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben

    Thank you Albert you keep safe yourself 🙂

    You do sound to have a lot of Arthritis and pain to contend with, but that is the right attitude I think keep on going and don't let anything stop you!

    There are ways around most things and this is a good place to get tips and support from people who understand ((()))
