I've recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees and hands.

Been back to the Doctor's as now have pain in my left hip. So much so, I'm struggling to walk. I start physio in 2 weeks time. Just want to know exactly what I'm dealing with and how it's going to impact on my life. I'm 57 and work in a primary school. They have been great and offered me a meeting with occupational health.

Feeling quite down about it as I need to get my head round it all. When I'm pottering about at home I can manage it but work is another thing. I love my job!

Any advice soooo welcome!!!

Thank you
