CP and Arthritis

Does anyone suffer with Mild CP and have Arthritis. I have just been diagnosed with Arthritis in both my toes and am in lots of pain and wondered if anyone has any tips on how to cope with the pain and to continue to walk.

    Hi, cerebral palsy and arthritis are not necessarily connected so I think you have to treat them as separate difficulties. I think, if you have not done so already, it would be helpful to speak to your doctor about the arthritis and ask about further tests and medication.

    Hi, am 30 and I have mild hemiplegia. When I accidently broke my toe I was told by a nurse that I would suffer from arthritis as a certainty and that I would take steps to protect my joints such as taking high strength glucosamine.
