Good morning all,

Just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Elaine I'm 47 and mum of 2 grown up girls. I have OA in my neck, knees, ankles and I think it's starting in my lower back as that flares the same way and same time as my other joints. I have worked from age 17 to age 41 as a carer and I do wonder if this has contributed to the OA. I have fibromyalgia and M.E aswell and raynauds, is raynauds linked to arthritis? I am unable to work so stuck at home 24/7 I no longer go out to town at weekends shopping with the hubby. I stay in, the payback is too much.

Thank you for being there for me and many others. ❤
