I have been newly diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis after spending 3 hours going over my scan results last week. It is in both my ankles and they are in a bad way, gone through such chronic pain that it felt like both my ankles were broken. Able to walk a lot easier now. Worst time of my life. I am on an Methotrexate, had chest X-ray to check my lungs, then back in a few weeks for results plus more bloods. Had a really bad week this week, can barely eat or drink, feel nauseous all the time which is horrible and breathless. Is this side effects of the illness or medication, as read on all the booklets given to me that can feel breathless. My rheumatoid department have been so amazing, fast service and great kindness
