My name is Lynda, I'm in my 50s and have had osteoarthritis for some years. I had my left knee replaced 6 years ago now. I have arthritis in both hips, and my right knee and my left foot. My left hip is particularly painful at the moment.
I live in Sussex and work at a GP surgery. I love cats, crafts in particular quilting and taking photos of the sea. I am also on the preaching team of my local church.
Look forward to meeting some of you on here.
Welcome Lynda to the online community,
I see that you have had OA for some years and that your left hip is particularly painful at the moment.
In your other post you mention that you need motivation to exercise . I attach some links that I hope might be of interest to you
You have come to the right place to join in with members who want to support each other in a great variety of ways. So do take some time to browse round the website and share your expertise in crafts or your love of cats with us.
Do let us know how you get on with Leon and his mother Janet following the exercise programme, it can be fun.
We look forward to hearing from you

Thank you. I already signed up with Leon. And I will be talking to my doctor this week to get help with the pain if possible.0
