Hi all, i am a fed up newbie and hoping there is someone out there to reshine the light at the end of the tunnel! I was diagnosed with ra nearly 2 years ago, it took almost a year for them to try me on methoxterate along side paracetamol,ibuprfen and oxycodone. Six months down the line they have temperarily stopped the methoxterate as i have rapidly over a year severely deteriorated to the point of being virtualy bed ridden with excruiating pain. I have had to under go several tests to find out what else is wrong which i finally find out on friday 14th. I feel so let down and frustrated with the nhs they treat you like another number and try to get you out within 5 minutes not explaining anything. Not to mention all the appointments taking so long that your forever chasing and being pushed from pillar to post and in the mean time left to suffer in severe pain! I am really losing the will to live and sometimes wish i would fall asleep and not wake up! I no longer live i am just existing. Wooooooh! Rant over ha!ha!
