Hi from Scotland.

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

    Hi @annmchugh2010 glad you have found us 😃

    Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and your knee is one of the most common parts of the body to get it!

    You may find this a useful link to a page on our website which explains all about the subject:

    There's some great information on how it might affect you plus how to cope with pain, exercise and other related problems.
