Hi everyone, I've been a member for 3 years but haven't written anything. Reading all you're comments about living with R.A, how you try and cope with life and children. The last 3 years this site has really helped me come to terms with my R.A. Thing is now I need some information. I feel pretty silly asking but I don't really know many who suffer with it. I've tried many of the medications offered to me but I always end up with terrible side effects so the Dr's stop them. Now my Dr wants me to try the anti tnf's but I'm scared. My rhumy nurse doesn't seem to understand and if I say I have any new symptom due to the R.A they say oh its just another part of the R.A. I feel like they don't care. I've been having the worst flare of my life. My ribs hurt, hurts to breath, I've been getting terrible hot flushes and night sweats. Now I'm getting banging headaches and the sun feels like it's burning my eye balls out. I truly don't no what to do or who to turn to. My own gp is totally useless. He said before I had my R.A blood test that I was to young for r.a and the pain was in my head. So you can understand why I've lost all faith with him. I'm sorry to go on but as you all know this pain isn't something to laugh about. Any help or information would be a god send xxx
