Hi, I'm Kaz - I am currently 51 years old and I have OA, and Fibromyalgia amongst other things! I am currently going through an extremely bad OA flare. My hands in particular are a total nightmare - this is certainly not helping the fact that I have to use crutches to get around. I am hoping to get my doctor to finally let me see a rheumatologist (I was diagnosed at 26 and I've never seen one). I really hope for an improvement before February 2nd as that's a day (a Sabbat) I celebrate called Imbolc and I really want to get some cooking and cleaning done!
So I'm happy to say hi to anyone.

I understand that you have OA in your hands and Fibromyalgia. I have attached some links of information that you may like to read:
Do stay connected with us, as other members will share their tips and experiences with you about how to see a rheumatologist. I can see how important it is for you to get back into doing some cooking and cleaning, especially as you are looking forward to the 2nd February. I am glad you have found us.
