Hi everyone .. I was diagnosed 4 years with RA .. I am currently on Iv Acterma and I have tried most DMARDS and biologics but had to stop them due to side effects or that they basically stopped working! I have had plantar facisitis since May so have really been struggling walking and have been seeing a physio ..now my right knee has become extremely painful and stiff and I am hobbling to get around and can hardly walk any distance . Which isn't good as a work fulltime as a ward sister on a busy stroke ward and stand for upto 10 hours aday !! My whole body feels like it's flaring up and every day is a battle . There might be a possibility of a promotion at work but that would be mentally more stressful and I worry that I will end up of sick and let my team down .. I just don't know what to do and normally I don't let it get me down as I also have two children to think about .. I know I should get in touch with the RA nurses but I keep thinking its a flare it will pass but how long should I carry on hobbling about !! I don't want to go off sick as I worry about my job but at the moment I am not a good advert for the NHS hobbling around !! Lol
