I'm another new person to this site and have been reading other peoples blogs, so thought it was time i joined in too. It's good to hear from other people with similar symptoms. I was diagnosed with RA in September this year, after having trouble since April , starting with tendonitis in my ankle, and then lots of other pains, especially when I got up from sitting. I had a couple of steroid injections which helped a bit now, am 1 month into sulpha......can't remember how to spell it. and so far it is okay, I really hate taking tablets! still got lots of aches and pains but was told it would take several months before it kicked in. At the moment everything hurts, especially my knees last week when it was really cold. Not sure where it is all going, finding things tough at the moment, trying to ignore all the aches and pains and sorting Christmas. So anyway, just wanted to say hi and join in.
