Recently attended a routine rheumatologist appointment and he examined me and diagnosed Osteoarthritis of my right hip and knee.
I asked if it was linked to my severe Vitamin D deficiency as it hovers around the 11 mark and he looked amused.
I realise it's wear and tear I think, lol however in my logic I was just being simple.
I do volunteer at my local NHS hospital and it involves a deal of walking when escorting patients and visitors so I'm quite mobile until my right hip gets a bit sore and I adopt a bit of a limp.
I'm told replacement joints will be what I need but they can see if physiotherapy will help.
Could anyone please give me some much needed insight in to this disease please?
Thanks in advance. Denise
