I'm new to this forum and have never really used a forum but I am looking for a community who can help and support me on this journey.
I was diagnosed with RA only last week and it's come as a shock. The doctor immediately thrust medication at me but I told them I would like some time to think things over and let it sink in.
I am pretty scared at the prospect of taking medication for the rest of my life, and being only 33, how this condition and the drugs will affect my future.
The doctors are prescribing Methotrexate and Hydroxychloroquine, does anyone else take this combination of drugs?
Methotrexate sounds horrendous!
Any advice or support is greatly appreciated as I don't know anyone else going through the same thing I am.
