I am currently waiting an nhs refural for RA...the pain I suffer is getting out of control. I have pain in ankles,wrists,hands and shoulders daily....but I also get a bad lower back. I go to sleep in pain and wake in pain, it takes me at least 30 mins for my joints to losen in the morning. I feel completely disabled and noone understands what I'm going through....my partner has no idea how bad it actually is. I'm on codrydamol and a gel rub for pain management but this doesn't do much. I feel completely disabled and I'm 29..don't think I'm going to be able to work for much longer. Help!!!!
