Hello from France
I’m Karen, 59 this week and I was diagnosed with arthritis in February this year in the base of my spine. I’m now having my knee investigated but since visiting my doctor, my wrist is also causing pain. From being fully fit I now feel that life is only heading one way and on some days definitely feel down.
I know I’m luck to live in west France and have a swimming pool so that’s a good form of exercise for keeping me mobile but it isn’t helping with the pain. I do some yoga, walk into my village for bread or a glass of wine (it is France). All of this will hopefully keep me mobile but I also have allergic asthma so can’t take anti-inflammatory drugs. I’m probably looking for a magic elixir but what can I do about pain, especially at night
I think I need to talk more to my doctor about type of arthritis and pain management
its good to hear everyone’s stories and advice
