Hi, I am 62 and retired from nursing last year due to my RA, however a year on I am feeling a bit better and with meds feel I am ok. My meagre NHS pension needs topping up now in order for me to pay the bills so I have a nursing job two long days a week. 7.45 am to 20.30. They are not together. Yesterday I had to move a lot of furniture, wardrobes, beds etc with my partner but today I can barely walk! My feet, hands and especially my knees have been so painful. Went out to walk around some gardnes nearby and had to sit for most of the visit.
My fear is will I feel like this after working? Has anyone else tried to go back to work or have 'done too much' one day and suffered the next or am I just a wimp! Thank you for looking.
