Hi I was finally diagnosed with aggressive rheumatoid arthritis, after a year of having massages seeing physio's and Gp. That all told me I was tense and depressed and needed to relax more - until I woke up one morning and could not straighten my hands ( I was terrified) . After demanding to be referred to see a Rheumatologist my Gp finally agreed👏 It was a 3 month wait in that time I could not squat to use the toilet, without yelping. In the mornings I was scared to try and get out of bed as the pain and energy it took was intense😭 I am now on prednisolone 10mg daily Hydroxychloroquine sulfate 400mg daily methotrexate 20mg weekly - I do feel I have improved - although far from normal 😧 I am so scared about my future and hate the nausea feeling that is with me most of the time 🙁 Groan over and hoping to hear some positives from my RA pen pals ❤️ Thank you for reading and look forward to hearing from you .
