When I saw my RA Consultant she told me that my RA has now gone into the ligaments in my legs and that my ankles have locked, meaning they do not move in any direction. Coupled with oedema and an awful lot of pain I hope you can understand my concerns about our flight to LA in a few days time. Am I mad to be doing this? Should I put my body through this? What happens if my pain is acute during the flight? Up until yesterday I was a little more positive but I am worrying about the whole trip.
Has anyone else flown with pain, oedema and RA?
You have all be so helpful and supportive and I appreciate your comments.
