Hi I’m new to this forum but I would really appreciate some help/advice. Im a 49 year old woman and Ive been suffering for the past 4 years. I have bilateral osteoarthritis in my hands, hips, knees and midfeet and I also have osteoarthritis in my lumber spine. I also have bursitis in both my hips. All my arthritis has been diagnosed by x-ray and I have had an MRI scan off my feet which also showed up some inflammation. I had to pay privately to get my MRI done. I am in constant pain even at night. I’m taking co-codamol but can’t take anti-inflammatories because they make me feel sick. I don’t see any specialist about my condition and the only information I have on it I got online. I’m visiting my GP tomorrow but I find it very difficult to get across to her how sore I am. Does anyone suffer from osteoarthritis in all these joints? Is it normal? What pain medication is everyone on? Should I be seeing a specialist and if so what kind? And how do I talk to my GP? Sorry for the long winded message but I’m just desperate for some help and relief. Thank you so much in advance x
