Hello I have just joined the group as I am trying to cope with living with MS & arthritis. I am 77 years old & have MS which affects my right side. As a result of that I had a left hip replacement 22 years ago which is holding up well. I have now been diagnosed with severe arthritis of my right hip which is becoming very painful & stiff. Because of my MS I have muscle wastage an that side & find it really difficult to do exercises to help. I am hoping to get advice from this community about how to cope with the pain ZB& how to keep mobile. I already use a stick because of my MS as I have problems with my balance & have had a number of heavy falls.
