Yes it's the middle of the night and I am awake.ibam sure many of you know the feeling of the arthritic pain waking them up and them getting up and moving around, so not to wake their partner. Was diagnosed with arthritis in my neck in 2017, then my shoulder and more recently my hip, knee and left hand have joined in the party. At 56, I feel too young to be hobbling around in so much pain. I blame it on too much athletics when I was young and, of course both parents genes!!! So generous lol Anyway, I have found my way here. I don't know what I am hoping for, but here goes 😀

    Hi @Deejayzee

    Welcome to the online community so glad you found us.

    I can relate to you being up in the night awake because of arthritic pain and going to another room so as not to wake your partner up.

    You say that you were diagnosed with arthritis in the neck 2017, then your shoulder and recently your hip and knee and left hand have joined in the party.i to have got athritis in my neck hip and knees but knees and R hip have had ops total replacements a few years ago.Pain levels have gone down since that happened but still need to exercise those levels in different ways.

    Here are a few links that may help

    Hope these help i am sure as you talk to others on the forums they will offer advice and help as everyone on the forum has some form of arthritis and understands what you are going through.

    All the best Christine
