Wondering if anyone out there is experiencing RA with pregnancy and how they're coping/meds? I was diagnosed last summer (I'm 38) and was on 6 tablets of sulfalasine a day, started to make me feel better but not completely. I then fell pregnant which was planned and decided to come off the sulfasine and for the last 13 weeks have been med free (I am 17 weeks). I had hoped for remission but that's not happened and my mobility is getting worse. I have just been signed off for a month and am working from home but will be back in March and commute for 4.5 hours a day. Not sure how I'll do this, I have been looking at having a cortisone injection to give me a break as also off to New York to see family but wondered what other ladies took to deal with RA? I haven't had this disease for long so trying to mentally and physically cope with it, I've gone from being a gym addict to not being able to get down the stairs or the energy to go for a walk! Anyway any help/advice would be great, thank you in advance
