    Hi @lauree

    Welcome! :)

    You are not alone as many members of the community suffer with fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis and I am sure they will be more than happy to offer you support and a hand of friendship :)

    Please forgive me as I have not heard of Mesenteric Panniculitis, would you mind explaining what the condition is? If not, not to worry :)

    Ami :)

    Hi @Ami2301.
    Thank you for the welcome.
    Mesenteric Panniculitis is rare condition (300 people in the UK), which involves periodic inflammation of the mesenteric wall (the wall that most of our internal organs are attached to. Unfortunately it's a chronic illness

    Hi @lauree

    Is there medication or treatment to reduce the inflammation?
