Orthotics Waiting List - Lothian
I’m new to the group and am really struggling just now. I have fibromyalgia and rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis (still being diagnosed). I am suffering from chronic pain and was referred to orthotics in April last year. I’m still on the waiting list.
i was wondering if anyone could recommend any splints/orthotics they have found useful for wrists, fingers, hips, knees, heels, elbows or shoulders? I should get appointment within the next couple of months and want to be prepared for what is on offer - if anything.
thanks in advance.

Hello @trickynicky, welcome to the online community! It's lovely to have you here.
I see that you are in the process of being diagnosed with either psoriatic or rheumatoid arthritis and are waiting for an appointment to possibly get some orthotics. You might find some useful info on these pages:
Please do keep us updated, it's good to talk :)
