Hello everyone in pain out there, just want to introduce myself. I am 44 and was told 3 years ago that i had rhuematoid arthritis since then my life has changed dramatically. I have never had a day without pain most days i find it hard to move and this last 2 weeks my back has been so sore so thats a new spot, as they say it's very much alive!! I am on methotrexate and have started humira injection earlier this year which i thought was going to answer all my prayers :sad: . I take tramodol and paracetomol for pain and have tried alot of relaxation and holistic therapies as well. Oh i do hope there is a light at the end of this very long tunnel :???: Just to tell you though i have the most supportive family who must be so sick of me grunting and groaning by now. Oh but the biggest laugh of all is i have been an insulin diabetic for the last 33 years. how lucky can one girl be :lol: Am looking forward to being able to chat on here and have an auld rant now and again :smile:

    You have come to the right place to have a rant, we are a good bunch on here and understand what you are going through.
    Makes the world of difference to have a supportive family behind you.

    Look forward to seeing you around..x

    Hi Mona and welcome from me :grin:

    I see you have discovered that these AI diseases do not like to be alone, they tend to come in groups. I am losing count of my 'labels' :oops: Peeps on here understand though.
