Hi Everyone,

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
