New to this community


So I am new to this community, though not the site, and I thought I would say hi and introduce myself. I am a young man (22), with severe chronic pain in from the back down, and osteoarthritis caused by bilateral clubbed feet.

I use a wheelchair and walking stick, though more often than not I have to use a long white cane for my visual impairment so... that's a lot of mobility aids but... oh well.

Basically, I get a lot of pain, have a lot wrong, on miniml medication and sometimes need support.

So hi.

Hi Jill, HealthUnlocked are having problems with the website at the moment. Also with it being the weekend, most people will be out anyway but if you come on during the week you would most probably get an answer to your posts a lot quicker.

By the way this is the fourth attempt at posting this reply.

Regards. John
