Young with back issues

Hi

My name is Jenni, I’m nearly 35 and just been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the lower spine and hips. I’m not obese but I’m not slim either. I work as a nurse so I am on my feet for long periods of time. It’s so bad in the morning and when I’m having to doing to medications at work. I get pins and needles in my feet after a while and my foot goes numb. Painkillers don’t work and the amitriptyline is not really working that well. I’ve told my GP and it was horrible. I have been referred to the pain management service and physio but what can I do in the mean time? I have to mask my pain like 95% of the time. Anyway, hello that’s me
