experiences welcome


HI all,

I have not received a diagnosis as of yet, I am awaiting Xrays, However I experience stiffness around my lower back, left hip area and can't kneel down at all on my right knee due to discomfort. I experience very little pain, but the stiffness can be quite sore and limiting. I may go into a shop feeling fine, by the time I come out, I can barely walk with the discomfort. all my inflammory markers in my bloods are within the normal range. I also experience severe burning in the soles of my feet. I have got a cream for G.P which has definitely helped however it does not completely eliminate it, Has anyone with a diagnosis experienced similar symtpoms to this.?
