New fellow here, used the HealthUnlocked site when I quit smoking, now I have Rheumatism, been diagnosed almost a year now. I am on 8 x mtx, folic acid, omeprazole, naproxen (as and when required, about 1x500 a day, at times 2), amiltriptolyne, fish oil and the odd bottle of newcastle brown ale and the odd zopiclone.
I'm from Leicester, so looks like we will be poping over to meet the Warwickshire NRAS gang as theres no group in Leicester.
Its been quite a scary journey, my first meds were a huge jab of roids into my swollen knee and a few doses of hydroxychloroquine which turned me into a walking boil and my skin fell off That was a rough intro to RA! I honestly didnt think I would make it.
I have osteo arty in my feet too, that hurts more than my knees. Things are a settling down a bit since I went on the mtx. I do have a few issues which I could use advice on, but I thought I would say "Hello" first
