New to the site so Hi to everyone out there,
49 year old single male diagnosed with RA in early 2016, started with pain in both feet which then spread to both knees, both hands, both wrists, right hip and right shoulder. Shocked as to how life has changed from doing everything for myself to then not being able to do simple things like open a bottle top, put a plug into the wall socket and don't even mention trying to put socks on!!!
was put on 2 x Pranoxen and 8 x Co-codamol a day at first with no success, then 8 x Tramadol a day - again no effect, then steroids and now Methotrexane but no change as yet.
worst part (apart from the pain) is that my 6 year old daughter can't understand why I can't pick her up or play with her like I could 6 months ago and that really does hurt me!
Is there light at the end of the tunnel??
