Hi,
My name is daina and I live in the states.I was diagnosed with JRA at 5 years old in 1981. I have it in every joint of my body, but have always ben RF negative. I also have fibroyalgia. I'm currently being treated with orencia, MTX, prednisone, lyrica, and others, as well as pain killers.
I just had an MRI of my cervical spine and found, due to deterioration I have a disc pressing on my spinal cord and two pinched nerves. I also had an MRI of my knee and am hoping to be sent to someone for a replacement. Because of my knee I have a stress fracture in the opposite foot. My body is falling apart and I just wanted to have a place to vent.

    Hi Daina. You've definitely come to the right place to vent and you seem to have a lot to vent about. I'm sorry you needed to find us but I hope you'll soon feel at home here. Why not get involved on the Living With Arthritis or Chit Chat frorums as there are more people on there. See you soon.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
