Two days ago it was confirmed that I have RA. I was already on a reducing number of the steroid, Prednisolone and will be for a few weeks. The Rheumatologist prescribed Methotrexate and Hydroxychloroquine which I've taken for the first time this morning. I'm optimistic and currently have only slight pains in my shoulders, wrists and hands. I'll write on here every two weeks or so to report my progress.
