Hello all, I just found this forums and am so glad as it is always nice to know you are not alone when it comes to this horrid disease. I am Tracey and form Scotland and I have RA and been diagnosed for 5 years now and am 40.
Currently on 20mg Methotrexate and 500mg naproxen morning and night and tearing my hair out with this latest flare I am having as all my joints are sore esp my right ankle and left hip now and this is making my back sore from hobbling so now looking for walking aids hence finding this forum when I googled walking stick RA.
I have lots of various strengths of painkillers but the strong ones make me feel sick or the paracetamol just don't cut it anymore. I have the rheumatologist on 26th of this month so roll on the day I see him and he can help me out and hopefully get me back on track again.
