Hi I am new here I was GP diagnosed in November 2015 , and trying to study a degree in Ceramics after two letters from my GP I have finally got an appointment with a Rh Consultant this June, Now have nodules on both hands, wrists, and it has just started to effect my feet badly, my facial skin, and back on occasion along with Chronic fatigue most of the time, I have the odd day when I feel relatively normal followed by a slump into Chronic fatigue. First time it happened it was like a bouncy castle being unplugged. My question is how long does a flare up go on for I feel like I have been in flare up since November bar a couple of normal days, its good to read other stories but also depressing cannot see how people can lead any sort of life with this condition I have tried numerous diets and alternative therapies without success, I have not seen a specialist yet so no toxic drugs taken yet , they terrify me, but feel I will have no choice but to take what ever they offer if they offer anything some of the stories on here are not great ,if my Gp had not sent a second letter I would of had to wait 18 months to see someone on NHS by then I cannot imagine what sort of state I would be in its bad enough after waiting 7 months and on the brink of giving up my full time course and going part time if I can get financial help through a disability claim which also sounds like a huge process ,supplying xray evidence etc its not enough a Docter tells them they want xrays !! It feels like an enormous task is ahead of me, so enough of me ranting Flare ups how long do they last ?Thanks Amanda
