    Hey dean84, it's nice to meet you and I applaud the positive outlook. RA is a pestilential beast, yes? I have PA which is kinda similar but also different - what meds do you take and do they help? To have had this since the age of 2 is - oooooh, what are the words? - well, I have no idea how you have gotten through it all, I started my problems aged 37 and even that felt indecently early. I now know it wasn't and that I was lucky to get as far as I did without it.

    Most of us tend to hang around the LWA forum, that's the living with arthritis one where we deal with questions about meds, treatments, operations etc etc. The other thread titles are self-explanatory. I look forward to seeing your name here and there. I wish you well. DD
