I had pain for many years w/o a diagnosis. Seen a rheumatologist whom ordered blood test then diagnosed me with RA. Methotrexate and folic acid for approx 2 years. The results were pretty damn good, but now its getting worse. My specialist was getting ready to start new meds then she transferred about 200 miles away. Haven't found new doctor yet. Symptom's are getting worse. It used to hit one joint at a time now it is triggering in two joints. Have pain and weakness in these joints. Cannot move due to the pain. Only 55 yrs old.
