Hi everyone I have osteoarthritis in my hands and feet and noticed over the past 6 months pain in my back and general aches which are worse in the morning getting out of bed. Is it worth contacting my GP. My pain relief needs reviewing I think.

    Morning @Lizbam

    Poor you it's tough when facing the day is a trial with pain. There is absolutely no harm in contacting your GP if things have changed. Maybe a slow release medication might suit you better so you are in less pain when you wake up. I have a slow (early) start to the day myself. I get up take meds and it's half an hour to an hour before I move far. Hence popping in here first thing.🙂 Something to do while the meds kick in.

    Take care
