I'm a 34 year old lady and was diagnosed with Jeuvenile Cronic Arthritis (JCA) when I was a baby which is now known in adult terms as Rheumatoid Arthritis. Although tough at times and lots of foot surgery, I managed to have a career as a PA full-time and luckily have understanding employers who support me when needed.
I'm finding things a but tough at the moment and feel a bit alone with it all as I've been on Oral Steroids for 2 years in the hope to fall pregnant (no such luck yet). I'm having a flare up at the mo and feel really frustrated as am trying Sulfasalazine but feel I'm experiencing horrible side effects.
Would love to speak to anyone who has/had similar experiences or has been on oral steroids long term successfully.
It's a horrible illness at times and I can feel like people don't really understand or don't want to listen so anyone that would like a chat that would be great.
