In July 2012 I was diagnosed with RA, the same month I started with a strange feeling in my right leg and thought it was connected to my RA. My specialist nurse noticed I was dragging my leg and recommended I saw my GP. A lot of time has been wasted with me being passed from pillar to post and finally after I have lost use of both legs and 1 arm with limited use in the other and speech also affected. I have been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and have a limited life span probably no more than 2 years with my breathing and swallowing affected as those muscles stop working too. I now feel that RA isn't the worst disease I have to cope with and I say to everyone, enjoy what remissions you have and always remember to enjoy the little things in life cause you never know what is round the corner. xx
