    Hi there,

    sorry to hear that you are having such a painful time with all of this right now. In this situation there may not be a lot that we can suggest if you already are getting pain medication from your GP. Obviously what you really need is the results of scan, to know what is happening.

    But the kinds of things which are worth considering are more about pacing yourself through the day and taking small amounts of exercise.

    I hope you will consider logging onto the living with arthritis forum as that kind of day to day support can really make the difference.

    I wonder whether you've got some information to look at? If not do send us a e-mail to [email protected] with your name and address and we'll post you some.

    I hope you find some good support on the forum during this stressful time.

    all the best
