    Hello @candicef

    Welcome to our online forum. I hope you will find it a safe and interesting place to interact with other members and share experiences .

    Being diagnosed with a new condition can be very worrying and affects everyone in your life. You have certainly come to the right place to get some support and advice, but maybe you can tell us a bit more about yourself please?

    You may also find it to look at our website which has a great deal of information on treatments and conditions, and you may even find a local group you can join.

    Do keep in touch with us. We enjoy hearing from our members.

    Best wishes

    Thanks for the info Caryl

    My right knee mobility is very restricted which makes walking unaided and stairs a battle. The poor old nhs is slow and self help seems the only option.
