My name is Susan, most people call me Sue. I just would like to say Hi 👋 I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis last April, which I have in most joints except knees. I experience flare ups and swelling mainly in my right hand which is very painful, I didn’t know that Osteoarthritis can cause a inflammation and swollen of joints. I’ve given up trying to get a doctors telephone appointment, it’s so difficult to get past the receptionist who think they are there to diagnose your symptoms and make me feel as if I’m wasting their time. I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself today. I would love to know how you all cope with this condition.
