I suffer from Arthritis in my spine however recently been having joint pains in my right knee, shoulder and now hip. All my right side. I haven’t been to see my GP yet however could this be the start of it now in all these other areas! Has anyone else got or had the same. It’s very painful and is worse after sitting then getting up.

    Might it be that you have an antalgic gait (walk wonky!) due to the pain in your back? This can definitely happen to some people and it puts pressure on their other joints.

    Are you using a walking aid on one side only?

    Maybe you are sleeping oddly too??

    Just a thought given it's all on one side. The same side.

    Let us know what the Dr says if you go to see him/her.

    Take care
