    Hi @tinapops
    Welcome to the scope online community ?
    I'm Tammy and I'm one of the volunteer community champions here on the site. It's great to meet you and I hope you find the site helpful and useful and gives you the opportunity to talk to others who may have had a similar experience to you. 
    I'm sorry to hear you have arthritis and that you are in pain. I can relate to how you feel as I suffer with chronic pain myself. Is there anything your gp can do to help?
    Have you looked on the Internet for tips on gentle exercise at all?
    Hope to speak to you soon.
    Take care
