Hi all. I have just been diagnosed with RA in January of this year but been dealing with the pain and have known something was wrong for the last 2.5 years. My past doctors just didn't believe me and refused to test me because I am only 30 and I deal with pain very well, so I've been told. I started Methotrexate in February and it helps some but I'm still in alot of pain. I also have alot of muscle pain, brain fog, confusion, exhaustion, and sleep problems. I'm not sure what's going on with me. My rheumatologist told me it takes a while for the meds to kick but I'm not feeling very confident in that. I feel so bad for my family because I can not do much with them and my fiance has to pick up alot of the slack while working overtime to provide for our family. I've been pretty depressed lately and am wondering if this might have anything to do with my pain but when I mention it to my doctors they don't seem to listen. I'm just really frustrated and thought I would have made more progress then this. So I've decided to join this group to receive some encouraging words and some advice. Thank you all
