Hi. Just registered. I have osteoarthritis in my knees and back and hip pain I've not been able to get diagnosed as anything. I also have had a lot of pain in one of my shoulders and in my heels in recent months. I am also autistic, ADHD and diabetic.

    You write that you have osteoarthritis in knee back and spine and have hip pain but have not yet been diagnosed. You are also autistic, ADHD and diabetic.

  • My hip and knee Osteoarthritis was diagnosed by my GP with the aid of x rays done at my local hospital. My hips didn't show any changes so I am at a dead end on getting what that pain is diagnosed. And since that post I have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, less than a month ago in fact, so between that & my dressing changes on my leg ulcers I have been overloaded with appointments anyway.
