Long story short at 48 I started with left hip pain whilst walking on the beach, hip was fine but X-ray showed degenerate disc damage if lower back. Now aged 55 I have OA of complete spine which can’t be operated on now as I’m too risky after a subarachnoid hemorrhage in November 16 . I have arthritis in knees shoulders hips and hands, my fingers are turning to my pinky. I have awful pain daily and really struggle laying down in bed, recently I started having elbow pain again bilateral and visited GP who without ordering X-ray told me this will be arthritis. Has anyone else on here had such progressive arthritis? I’m now using a wheelchair permanently outdoors as my physio recommended I don’t use crutches or my frame as I’m putting too much pressure on my neck as it’s pretty bad, I also get vertigo since stroke so I often have to use wheelchair indoors too. I’ve piled weight on due to medication and lack of mobility and trying so hard to lose it with a very strict diet and gentle chair exercise
