Hi my husband has Severe RA and Raynauds. The RA only started 4-5yrs ago and has already got to the point where his right hand is almost useless and the left is well on the way. He also has it in his feet and legs, again the right is slightly worse than the left and in his shoulder. On top of this he also has Ostrich Syndrome, you the one, head in sand I can't see it, don't know about it so it can't happen. Well I think thats at least is in remission if not cured. He had a mini Stroke last week and whist in hospital one of the Rheumy consultants came round with some students. Just before they finished the consultant had the student go through the "at risk of" list. Poor hubby could not put his head in the sand and ignore it any more.
