Hi, just want to say hello!
I have had arthritis for about 5 years andI also have fibromyalgia. It would be good to talk to people who know what it's like.

    Hi Bugs,

    Welcome to the online community, it's great to have you as a member.

    Ah, so you have an arthritis and fibromyalgia. Similar to me then, what type of arthritis do you have, is it osteoarthritis or one of the autoimmune ones?

    I'm guessing you are already OK in your treatment plan - I found this really interesting, it's some research funded by Versus Arthritis regarding fibromyalgia

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will lead on to increased knowledge of Fibro - and maybe a treatment one day.

    The thing I like is that I can come here and admit if I've had a rubbish day and don't have to go into details and don't need people trying to fix me, it just is what it is and I can get it off my chest and move on.

    As well as that though we like to have a good time and help others who come here for help, I'm sure you will be able to do that, I'm looking forward to seeing your posts around the discussions

    Take care

    Yvonne x

    Hi, thanks for the welcome.
    I have Osteoarthritis everywhere, my hands are rubbish, which is a bit of a pain as I'm a chef and use my hands all the time. I'm very much looking forward to see how others cope, and I'm hoping to pick up some new skills.
