Can you do this for other illnesses too, thinking of my diabetes as my answers would be different for that illnesss to rheumatoid?


As they don't take any names, and there isn't actually a log in, I suppose if you clicked on the link a second time, you would be able to fill the questionnaire in for a different condition. But you might need a different email address for them to contact you by. Was diabetes one of the options? I would have liked to fill it in for my Bronchiectasis, but they only lung disease mentioned was COPD.


Yes I was gonna fill in my diabetes and insulin as well cos my answers would have been different x


Yes I am sure you can but best email Becca first just to ask if you would need to have different log in to survey monkey or will it let you complete two questionnaires.




Actually you can't, I just tried and it remembered me and said I had completed the survey. :-(

I am interested in the connection between RA and peripheral neuropathy in feet and legs. Any trial studies on this I would be happy to join.

Survey completed!


This is a weird survey if you have more than one of the illnesses, you have to pick just one medication to answer the questions about!!! I would have completely different answers for the different medicines!!! Anyway - watch out for the headings as they move so that the strongly agree sections are on the left sometimes and then on the right othertimes - and as you move down the questionnaire - you can't see the headings so you cant remember which is which. I have a feeling I may have messed it up a bit!!

It was quite interesting to do though... and you really do need the 20 minutes for it.
