Hi all, I was diagnosed on 23rd Oct 2012 after being treated by my GP for PMR for 4 months. I still think I also have PMR as some pains don't fit with RA. Rheumy does not think I have PMR and diagnosed RA.
It has took me a while to get my head around it to be honest.
I have been put on Methotrexate starting at 10mg, next week increasing to 15mg then 2 weeks later to 20mg. I am also on pred dropping to 14mg today. I was given a steroid injection 2 weeks ago to help with the pred tab reduction. It will be my 2nd dose of MTX today had no probs last week with it so hoping for the same this week lol.
I also have diabetes which is a bit all over the place cos of the pred so not a good combination.
Anyway just thought I would introduce myself, I am Sue and 49yrs old been wed to Ian for almost 31yrs and we have 8 children, 5 grandchildren and 2 german shepherds. So that's me.
Keep smiling cos you will only cry if you don't
