I'm a 44 year old carpenter, been having systemic joint problems for the last 8 years along with gut issues. Neck , shoulder to finger and hips to toes , only in the last 6 months the mild pain is getting more severe and frequent. I've visited my GP and rheumatologist many times over the years. Its been suggested I've hypermobility but my GP believes its all osteoarthritis. In this last 6 months crepsis and pain has caused anxiety , most my above mentioned joints pop and snap frequently. I sometimes feel like the world is closing in and ponder on what the future holds . I shall read your notes and emails with interest. I guess I'm looking for some positivity and hopefully push some to you .
