Wrist arthritis - how to manage since I have to use 2 sticks
I have had OA in both knees, worse in my right one for 2 years now but the consultant said that at 43 I was way too young for knee replacements so have had lots of physio but my knees kept giving way and affecting my balance, so they gave me 2 crutches and 2 sticks which I have to use each time I leave the house. I have now been diagnosed with arthritis in my left wrist (my dominant stick/crutch hand) and its making using my sticks a painful nightmare. Anyone else in this position please ? Any ideas ? Have consultants appt this afternoon to discuss latest wrist MRI but it seems the only option is steroid injections (which I don't want to do as I have a huge phobia of needles and 90% of people I know who have had them say they don't work or they only work for a short time). Many thanks.
