just wanted to say Hi 👋. I’m 51 and have had osteoarthritis in both my hands for about 10 years now. Always in pain thumb joints are the worst at the minute and I may need one joint replaced. I’m October last year I was told I likely had fibromyalgia due to have multiple joint pains and aches and constant exhaustion. I’m 4 months post hysterectomy with hormones all over the place and I’m really struggling to know what is normal for me now. I’m glad to have found this group and hope I can be of some support to others 😊
