I was diagnosed with ra in dec 11 it took about 8 months before they knew what was wrong with me.
I have been put on methotrexate ,plaquenil i was given a steriod injection and take co-codmol for the pain.
I'm so glad i have found this site as i have been feeling so alone.
My family are good but i sometimes feel like a burden.
I am a self employed hairdresser and have had to take time off work because its become to painfull, i have pain in most all my joints.
At the moment i am fighting through the benfit system so any advice would be most welcome.
thanks in advance
