Hi my name is Lisa and I was diagnosed a year ago with OA in feet, knee, hip and hands. Currently on waiting lists to see rheumatologist. Can anyone tell me if the pain ever goes away?

    Hi @mooandlu

    Welcome to the Versus Arthritis forum Lisa.

    I see that you’ve been recently diagnosed with OA. You’d like some input from the forum as regards pain longevity, well you’ve certainly come to the right place to ask the question.

    As well as feedback that you’ll no doubt receive, this link to our website will I hope be useful:
