Hi I have had Septic Arthritis since aged 11 and have Osteo Arthritis now as well. Would like to hear from anyone else who has suffered from childhood with Arthritis. I am now in my 50's. I have had numerous operations and two knee replacements on my left knee. Have Arthritis in my spine now. Also suffering Nuropathic pain. I have never spoke to anyone suffering since childhood and would like to disscuss medications that may have helped them.

      Hello Christine, thank you for your reply and taking the time to look up Septic Arthritis, at least you have read about something you didn't know much about.

    elizabeth, this particular forum is for sufferers of PMR/GCA. Yes I know they come under arthritis but they are a very specific arthritis. You haven't received many responses because like me most on this forum have no answers for you. Try askinq the moderator to ask this question on a different link- you may get more replies and help. Good luck. Christina.

    Elizabeth, it would be interesting to know whether you still retain your gall bladder, or have ever been known to have gall stones.
