Hello. Some background:- 64 years old. Phisically ( was?) pretty fit . Up to last November was able to run 5K in 30 mins at the gym. Now,when sitting for periods of time hips now stiffens, and it feels like I'm made of rusy armour! Also muscle pain in groin and lower back. Eases with excercises and movement. I guess it's been coming on for a few months. So off to the G.P and a pelvic X-Ray. Diagnosed with mild wear and tear in the hips and lower back. A short phone call with the G.P. diagnosed early stage O.A. "That's how it goes, excercise and come back and see me if it gets worse". The "odd" naproxen can calm it. It seems to have come on quickly. Now I appreciate I'm probably on the mild end of the O.A spectrum, but it's still come as a bit of a shock (Hey I'm an old man now :-) ). I just wondered what expereinced sufferers who have been on this journey think to this beginning. Any advice? Any comments? Thanks and thanks for reading this.
