Hi--- came on this site ten days ago , after RA ( my RudeAwakening) diagnosis.
Thanks for all the replies- steroid injection kicked in after 5 days , and it is only now ,when I am feeling much better, that I realise how ill I felt before!! I only hope that this feeling stays the same when I go on meds in 3 weeks.
Yesterday I got a Gp call to say that I also now have an underactive thyroid---- app this can often come hand in hand with my Rude Awakening-- has this happened to anyone else?
A mother of young children wrote on here last week, just after her diagnosis- has any one heard how she is doing? Bless her--- at least I'm at the grandchildren stage.
