    Hi @Sparklebright. Sorry you're in so much pain. How long have you been waiting for the x-ray?

    I had the xray on 5th of August and they said come back at the end of Oct too long to wait so I've got an appointment Thursday 9.30
    Really annoying. 
    Will post Thursday when I get back home.

    I have swollen feet calfs and knees. Also my ankles are very painful. When I get up in morning for a while it's to painful to put any wait on them. I have gently get my movement going. My xrays showed osteoarthritis in my joints. I've had 1 knee and hip replaced. They want to fuse my ankles next and replace the other knee and hip. My medication is butec patches pregabalin and co codamol. It helps a little with my mobility but doesn't fix the problem. 
    Hope you dont have my problems.
