Welcome, but sorry you have had to join us.

Your question: Can you run again? Some people achieve this, others don't. Sorry not to be more helpful than that! Having this diagnosis often means that life style changes have to be made, but lots of people live a more or less normal life with treatment.

If you look at past posts on here, most of them will be from people facing difficulties. But there will be a few from people who are doing well and doing things like running to raise money for research. I always find that the NRAS magazine is uplifting in its stories about what people do manage to do.

Hello and welcome.

You said that "you got RA from your gym" - I don't understand that, can you explain?

I've been diagnosed 7 years now and am in remission. So I could run if I wanted to, but I just hate running so I don't!

HI Mazhar,

Just wanted to clarify that RA isn't a virus, it is an autoimmune disease. Although no-one knows the exact cause yet, the general consensus is that it's a combination of genetics and an environmental trigger (which varies from person to person). A fuller explanation can be found here: nras.org.uk/what-is-ra-article

It is not possible that you got RA from the gym but that perhaps you found going to the gym made you feel the symptoms in a particular joint more. You may have to scale back your gym going just for the time-being until you get on the right medication and get your RA under better control. Talk to your nurse/consultant next time you see them and they will be able to advise more.

Kind regards

Advise you stay off Google.

Everything you read about does not necessarily mean you will get it all. We're all different, effected in different ways.

Some of us can lead a fairly normal life.

It is a shock to the system & to process it all can be daunting.

I was diagnosed with Severe Osteoarthritis just over two years ago, the shock of it flawed me. It's taking me awhile to understand what's going on.

But, you have good & bad days, no matter what type of arthritis you have, & with the right type of medication suitable for your needs & help available, (not forgetting the lovely advice you'll be getting from the lovely people on here), you may well feel less stressed & anxious.

Get as much info as possible from your GP.

You mentioned that you are out of work. Do you live in the UK?

If so, are you claiming benefits?

You could claim Employment Support Allowance (ESA) or Personal Independent Payment (PIP). You'll need to look up: gov.uk. to see what benefits you could be entitled to, or speak CAB (Citizens Advice Bureau).

Tears of joy. . . . tears of joy, dear man. 💧😃 💧☺️ (Very welcome 🙏 .) ✔️ Don’t be afraid to do the hard work. ✔️ If you think it’s ‘too hard’, remind yourself being debilitated is much harder. ✔️ It gets easier as you go along developing new/ better habits & begin to feel better. ✔️ Continue learning along the way as information/ knowledge evolves. ✔️Become self-disciplined. ✔️ Listen to your body & keep using your mind/ common sense. ✔️ Forgive & love yourself as there’s inevitable slips and normal ebb & flow backslides & baby steps forward all along the way. ✔️Avoid the time-wasting ‘blame game’ — especially ‘self-blame’. ✔️ healthunlocked.com/cure-art... 🕯🔦 💡🔅 🔆 ☀️ 🌞 🌝

Stay positive, eat well and it will help you in good stead. I was healthy, active and it floored me! I didn’t smoke or drink and thought how and why! But not worth going down that road. I have RA but it doesn’t define me or my life, I am going to keep doing what I can do best. I lost the ability to tip toe or run as fast as I use too but at least I can still walk. RA certainly gives you a wake up to enjoy the little things, appreciate life. 😊
