Pain support and everyday living

I'm in so much pain and don't know what to do with myself.

Excruciating pain in hands wrists thumb shoulder and big toe.

I live alone and struggling to even toilet on my own, what advice can you give?

Is there not community support for us

    Hello @welshkel18 and welcome to the Community. We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that will be your experience as well.

    Have a look at the following article from our website - I hope it is of some use

    It nay also be worth you calling our Helpline (number below) as they can offer advice on a lot of things to do with arthritis. There may also be local groups in your area so try searching in the In Your Area section of our website and see if any are available.

    Best wishes
