Hi everyone, I haven't posted for a while but I read all your posts. I am really struggling at the moment, I was diagnosed in March this year and started on 20mg Metoject, Tramadol & Naproxen. When I was initially diagnosed it was Sero positive and only in my knuckles. Since then my wrists have joined in, I have bursitis in my left elbow and 3 weeks ago my shoulders started my left side (knuckles, wrist, elbow and shoulder) are a lot more painful than the right. I rang my Rheumy nurse who said RA doesn't affect neck & shoulder (where I'm describing) when my shoulder first started I thought i may have slept funny and dismissed it but its getting worse, I feel I have no 'medical' support and feel I'm bothering them when I have a flare. My husband is very supportive and understands the whole disease (maybe not the pain) but at the moment I feel like a 70yr old not 30yr old with 2 children under 6!! I feel down in the dumps to say the least x
