Re: RA and associated effects

Hi Susan. I'm sorry to hear that you feel dismissed and unheard. As already suggested, it might be helpful to try and change clinician.

Re: Ashame of a pain

Hi Misimama. Thanks for your post as you highlight an important issue that younger people can struggle with osteoarthritis too. I am sure you are not alone with this problem that those around you may be less aware or less sensitive to what you are dealing with because of the misconception that only ...

Hi, some great advice from Dr Malde. Perhaps you have already considered any behavioural changes, but if not, there are some behaviour changes that can help with recurrent UTIs such as making sure you empty your bladder fully, wiping from front to back after you've urinated, and urinating after inte...

Re: Overactive bladder in children

Hi this all sounds really difficult for you and your daughter. Have you discussed with your GP the best way to manage this at school? Coming home wet, smelly and sore sounds really distressing for your daughter, and I am sure it is horrible for you to see her experiencing that. It's important that y...

Re: new nightime problem...

Hi there Dreading going to sleep and fearing what you will find when you wake up is really difficult.
