Hello, I am Ann and have newly been diagnosed with osteoarthritis; my right knee has been causing me a great deal of pain during the last 4 years and although several x ray's came back as 'wear and tear' I was never actually told what this could develop into. The pain comes and goes and if I do too much walking and carrying of even say shopping then the pain starts and a few times has given way.

So very glad to have found the group and all of you. Have a lovely day everyone. Ann x
