Subject: New Here
Ive recently joined a forum for Thyroid issues so I figured Id join one for arthritis issues too as Im feeling like everything is getting too much for me at the moment so I need a bit of support from people who understand.
I was diagnosed osteoarthritis in 2006 and sent home with the advice to take some vitamin pills as Im too young for anything else. I was 26.
Im now 28 and I have a son who is 13 months old and I went back to work in March this year after my maternity leave ended.
I only work part time but looking after myself and my house and my husband and my son is alot and Im finding it hard to put me first. I need a break but the only way I can get one is by giving up work and I cant cos I need the money.
Aswell as arthritis I have an under active thyroid and polycystic ovaries so Im a bit of a mess health wise.
Im mainly here to get some advice as Ive been reading my result slip I got after my X Ray and Im not sure what part of it means so if anyone could offer advice I would really appreciate it.
It confirms I have mild early osteoarthritis in both hip joints with some butressing of the left femoral neck but I dont know what the second part means.
I hope someone can explain....
