    hi babycham. sorry to hear you are hurting so bad just now but so much driving after such a long break would be a nightmare. i had a "flare" on thursday night and it was so bad i actually didnt know what to do but my overwhelming desire was to sleep. i ended up phoning nhs 24 and getting an appointment with them and today my pains and swelling are back to normal.
    hope you feel a bit better soon and thanks for my welcome.
    from what i have read so far you certainly seem like a lovely crowd.
    thanks m

    Hi Mairbic, Welcome to the forum for me too. Really sorry things have not been so good for you. Meds can be such a minefield at times. Hope you can get sorted soon. Lv, Ix

    :P Hi Mairi - and welcome from me too! You will find lots of people here in similar situations - and everyone is really friendly. I only joined the forum recently and wouldn't be without it now! I see that you have already posted on Living with Arthritis forum - will hope over to read that in a min. Also you might enjoy looking in on the "chit-chat" forum - lots of more light-hearted stuff on there - including "cafe" and "garden". Look forward to seeing you around! Love Tilly x

    thank you all so much for your welcome, you sure are a friendly bunch and hopefully i shall fit right in.
    i dont know of anyone personally who has r.a. or similar so it will be great to hear all your different voices on the subject. its nice to know that i can have a bad day and someone will understand where i am coming from and also to share my good days with you too and hopefully there will be lots of good days for us all.
    i have been trawling through lots of posts and discovered so much already.
