I was diagnosed with seronegative rheumatoid arthritis 8 weeks ago. I am 40 years old. I used to work in a factory 40+ hours a week, have 3 teenage sons, and used to enjoy crafting and fishing. I have a hard time just getting out of bed these days. My rheumatologist started me on 15 mg meloxicam and 400 mg plaquenil daily. It's not helping yet. I feel so alone in this as I know no one who has ra. My kids nor my husband understand my pain or exhaustion. I'm just looking for anyone who knows what this disease consists of so I know everything I'm feeling is not just in my head!!!
