Hello, my name is Gill and i am new to the forum. I have had RA for a year now and was on Metho but due to a high liver count have been temp taken off it!! Any body else had this problem and it was not due to alcohol Ha Ha

My partner is not very supportive and it is nice that i have found a place with people WHO UNDERSTAND I am off work sick at the moment, because my hands are painful and swollen

    hi, sorry to hear you are struggling, i think it's hard for partners to understand, mine doesn't either!!
    i have RA and my hands are awful, stiff swollen and so weak.
    it's horrible.
    welcome to the forum, i'm sure you'll find it a freindly welcoming place!!!

    Hi Gill

    Welcome to the site. I have never taken metho so cannot help you there. Why not join us on the other forums. Hope to see you posting soon.

    Yes we do understand on here. We are all in the same boat under the umbrella of arthritis so know what it is all about.

    I hope you feel better soon and are back at work shortly.

    All the best,
    Elna x

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.
