Old Friend Saying Hello & Asking Question.
I dont know whether anyone on the forum remembers me but i used to login to this forum regularly. That was a few years ago now and it was when i found that i had Kyphoscoliosis and Osteoporosis in my spine and hips. Im still having trouble with that and my last DEXA Scan shownt no change despite being on 70mg Alendronic Acid and Calcium and Vit D Tablets for the past few years. I also had an X-Ray done on my spine and hips and it turns out i have the beginning of Osteoarthritis in both of my hips which leads me onto my Question. I seem to have developed a hard boney lump on the main knuckle joint which joins the index finger onto the palm of my right hand, im wondering whether that has anything to do with the Osteoarthritis?
I hope everyone is keeping safe out there and hoping that old friends i used to talk to are still part of this forum. I hope know one on here has fallen victim to this horrid Coronavirus, stay safe out there.
Hello @Landgull36uk good to see you back.
Yes the bony lump may be related to your Osteoarthritis, see the article below from our website, and i would suggest that you consult a doctor to be sure if you haven't already done so.
In the meantime do keep posting and hopefully others will help with their experiences
Im relatively new to the forum so don’t remember you, but I know there are quite a few who’ve been on here a long long time! Perhaps you could scroll through some of the other forums and join in their conversations - I bet they’d be pleased to see you!
I don’t post that often but I do enjoy reading the posts, finding out useful information and seeing what a lovely supportive bunch everyone is to each other.
Thank you i will consider mentioning this to my Doctor. Thank you for the nice welcome back aswell :)0
I'll gladly have a scroll through other posts, Thank you for your welcome to this forum :)0
