    Hi @Walker60, like yourself & many people on here I'm sure I too have OA I got diagnosed nearly 10yrs ago now I started off on Cocodamol but roughly a year or so afterwards they put me on Zomoroh I have Oramorph also aswell as Naproxen, Lansoprazole Gabapentine & Paracetamol, not sure if  I've learnt to live with the pain or It's gotten easier to ignore some day's, I've got it in my spine, pelvis & hips & I'm pretty sure it's now in my hands & knees I've been getting a lot of stiffness with tingling numbness swollen hands & pins & needles I also have Raynaud's phenomenon which causes pain pins & needle's also but my fingers turn white when cold, but ino the signs of Raynaud & tends to really bother me during the Autumn/Winter obvs at the moment my GP can't investigate but hopefully I'll be able to see him soon ?
