Hi everyone......New to this😁 . I have eventually been told my aches and pains and crooked joints are not a figment of my imagination but arthritis😐 and like a lot of people been told to take over the counter painkillers for the pain but alas useless........getting it very difficult to do the simplest of tasks but gp's answer .....take paracetamol for the pain.....was on naproxen for some time but doctor told me to stop taking them because I was on them too long...My arthritis is worse in my fingers but starting to show itself in my ankles now.... so walking is going to be a no no soon. My job involves been on my feet all day so it looks like I'll be giving it up soon as well........ok moan over now 😃
