Hello all, my name is Gina and I have had arthritis since I was 18, I’m now 55. Recently my joints have started swelling more than usual. The pain is horrendous but my family don’t understand when I can hardly walk. Can’t hold a mop or hoover without my wrists and fingers swelling and becoming so will be nice to be able to have someone who understands.

    Welcome Gina( @Ginoginetti )

    I am very sorry to hear you are suffering so much at the moment with swelling and pain absolutely this is the right place to come to talk to those who understand.

    It is difficult for our families to understand just how painful Arthritis is. I have been showing my family the Versus Arthritis adverts myself!

    Please do feel free to contact our helpline if you this it would help to talk to someone on 0800 5200 520
