I've been experiencing a lot if pain as stated before in lower back, left hip and knee area; about two weeks ago I could not move off my bedroom flood it was so bad, still have stiffness around hip, some swelling around that area, lots of twinge pain and weakness and so tired all the time.
I have been pacing myself for the children and not always showing the extent of the pain. That said I went to see GP whom contacted hospital who called me this morning telling me to come in on Saturday for MRI this is great but obviously worrying as I've had traces of blood and proteane in urine.
I am scared as RA has hit me hard in hands and feet, only been on meds two months now but changes are slow. Trying not to worry but it's so difficult as I've mostly been fit but lately put weight on which is not helping I know, for now I will try to be brave and do the Christmas thing, first time I haven't wanted to.
