I've written on here once before and really appreciated the help and support I got. I have RA in my knees and I'm curious as to whether it is able to spread to just one finger? I have an appointment on Thursday. I'm on sulfasalazine and apparently it's not tackling the problem, I'm also on naproxen and that doesn't seem to work. I'm worried about going on the methotrexate because I'm only 19 and I know it can effect your having baby abilities, I realise the chance is small but it's still too much of a risk. Is there anything else that works? I was recommended to try accupunture but I'm not convinced it will work. Are there other drugs which work? And what are the best ones? All the doctors I've spoken to never seem very helpful or willing to talk about it but I'm sure Thursday they will as I will definitely bring it up. If you can help that would be great. Thanks.
