New to this Forum. Just been told I have arthritis in Both my knees
Hi . My name is Dasha I was a Care Assistant years ago. worked in many care homes & Age Concern Over the years, and a bit of Community care. At the time I never even thought about Arthritis My dad's mum had it in her Knees as she used to do early morning cleaning in offices. I have suspected that is what I had for about the last 2 years if not longer and I was right.
I have it in both Knees Left knee is worse then the right. at times the Left knee has given out on me.
I get a pins and needles sensation in my legs but it feels like the pins and needles is INSIDE the leg. what is this ? Iv told Drs and professionals about this and got vague answers as to what it is. Just 2 days ago I went to Drs again just to see if I could see someone about an xray as drs did say about having one, haden't heard nothing and was told then I should go to the hospital and ask. anyway I was so surprised expecting like a 2 week wait. I went and had an X ray about 40 minutes later. just got to wait till next week for the results. Been told its all the years as a Care Assistant that has given me Arthritis .
I am 47 years old.
