Hello to all
Hi, I am 44, have had 2 total hip replacements, but never officially diagnosed with osteoarthritis until about a month ago. I have trouble with thumbs, I'm wearing fingerless gloves on the warmest of days, by neck is very restricted and have joint problems in my big toes. I have finally got the GP to do bloods which have never been done. I'm on naproxen, and acupan 3 times a day. I'm feeling incredibly low as I feel too young to be like this, I have an 11 & 3 year old and cannot play with them & don't feel like I can be a proper Mum. I have a PIP interview on Tuesday but not holding out much help. Not sure what I'm trying to say but I'm sure I'm to the only one feeling like this and its the first time I have really said how I feel. Normally a very positive person but feeling pretty negative at the moment. Thanks for reading. Hope you're having a better day.
