My name's Angie, I'm 55 and started suffering from OA in both hips when I turned 51.
Both are bad but the left is worse. I think I also have OA in my lower back and right knee.
Definitely need a new body :-)
Welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing your story with us. Please feel free to have a look around, join in when and where you want.
So I understand that you started to suffer with OA in both of your hips when you turned 51. You are now 55 and your hips are both bad, but your left is much worse. You also think you may have developed OA in your lower back and right knee.
Below I have included a few links that I think you may find useful.
Ive included the two links about OA in both the knee and spine so that you can have a read. Ive also included a link about pain which may be useful for all of the pain you suffer with over your various joints.
I hope this is of help to you. Once again, thank you for sharing with us and please feel free to get involved in the forum. We are a friendly bunch and are always looking to make new friends.
Welcome, I definitely agree their I was saying the same the other day.
Do you take any medication for this? You should try Deepheat Spray; this seems to work sometime, but I do not want to use it often for my body to get used to it, so I can't win....😏 Apart from needing a new body how you otherwise?
Welcome to the forum from me too. Sadly we can't give you a new body sadly, but definitely can support you with tips how to manage your pain and everyday life.🙂
The forum is also very good for a bit of daily distraction. In my case I use it while my morning meds kick in!
Not bad thankyou Mz Tenacious, can't wait for lockdown to end to return to some kind of normality. Spring is in the air so roll on sunny warm days xxx
