I have osteoarthritis in my spine, knees and painful hands. I was born with epiphyseal dysplasia which has brought on early arthritis.

    Hello, I was born with eczema and then developed asthma when I was seven. Thirty years after that I began my auto-immune arthritis so basically more of the same, then OA was diagnosed when I was 52. That one did come as a shock because I thought I had ticked that medical box. I began with one joint, now it's around forty so life has its challenges and more interesting moments. I wouldn't have it any other way (which is just as well). DD

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