Hiya. in the space of 3 weeks I have gone from having some swelling in my fingers to being diagnosed with Acute Rheumatoid Arthritis and just to top it off am now laid up with tendon dammage. it's all just happened so very fast.

at least I don't seem to suffer too badly with the Methertrexate.

Anyway greetings from Dorset and I look forward to chatting with everyone soon

    Hi Kajo, welcome to the forum. You will have alot to take in at the moment. I'm so sorry that you have RA. Post any questions you have on the LWA forum and we will all do our best to answer you. Sorry th hear about the Tendon damage. You must feel you are on a rollercoaster. :( Glad the meds are agreeing with you. Lv, Ix

    Hi Kajo - welcome from me too! So sorry about your diagnosis. Must be a real shock for you happening so fast. But glad that you are not struggling with meth too much and hopefully you will start to notice an improvement before long. Everyone on this forum is really friendly and you will find lots of RA "newbies" to compare notes and lots of us "old hands" who will do our best to use our own experiences to advise you. Love Tilly x

    Hi

    A warm welcome from me too.

    I can only echo what everyone has said. Except I have RA in the hands as well as other places.

    I do hope you enjoy the Forums as much as many of us do.

    Looking forward to seeing you post soon.

    Love Trish xx
