I’m Anne aged 75 and live on Scotland’s West Coast. I have had fibromyalgia for many yrs but my joints and spine are arthritic. I had my right hip replaced in 2018. In 2019 my left hip, knee and foot became very painful and I started falling as my leg just gives way. I have seen Orthopaedic surgeon in September 2020 and he told me my hip wasn’t ready yet and an MRI scan showed my lower spine is degenerative as well fused disc that is nipping nerves..I have allergies to many antibiotics and prescribed drugs/ pain killers leaves me with little or no pain relief that works.. life is so limited.
