Hi all ive had R.A for about15 yrs it is painful bur as everyone on here knows, it is what it is. Im on 75mg diclofenac and one folic acid pill daily, 12.5 mg methotrexate weekly, and i inject humira once every 2 weeks. I see my consultant once a year and im told everythings fine and working as it should be which is good news but sometimes the pain just gets to much. I am on painkillers virtually every day, btwn them and a hot bath in the evening i do get some relief. I go to work every day through sheer will as i know when i start work it will ease as im not thinking about it constantly and have something else to occupy me. I am a self employed builder the doc says i should change jobs but i guess im bloody minded plus i like what i do. The mornings are allways very sore so motivation is key. Never posted on here before i do read a lot of posts tho as i can relate. Take care tho folks n when it seems like it cant get any worse and the pains real bad take a walk down a cancer ward.
