The pain affects me every day. On top of having arthritis I also suffer with Fibromyalgia. The constant pain gets me down.

    Thank you

    Its those days when no amount of pain killers, heat pads or just resting by laying down helps. I also suffer with Fibromyalgia which both exacerbates and affects my osteoarthritis.

    Hi @monty1961

    Love the name.

    Nice to meet you. Some days are just like the one you're having today. Those are the days when I take it very very easy (no choice really) and find something to do which takes nothing from me and might distract. Rubbish TV/the radio that sort of thing.

    I take my tablets as prescribed Use my wheatbag and tens machine. Add my MSN gel where I can reach and just get through the day.

    I hope things are a lot better for you tomorrow ((()))

    Take care
