I am newly diagnosed, have been on MXT for about 2 months now and doc has started me on a 2 month course of prednisalone and an increasing dose of sulfasalazine, needless to say immune system down and picked up a bug straight away!! I am an orthopaedic nurse and think it's taken about 2 years to get to a diagnosis, though I suspected it started 3-4 years ago.
I'm glad I have the diagnosis as now I know why I have been so tired and sore and all that other stuff. Looking forward to getting to know you all and sharing hints, tips etc etc. I feel so ignorant on the facts of RA but i'm learning!! :roll:

    Hi Cas

    Welcome to the forum, if you copy and paste your thread onto the Living with Arthritis forum, you will find you get more reponses. :smile: This zone is more of an introductory forum and not so many members look in on here. I am sorry that you picked up a bug very quickly. Ask any questions on the LWA zone and we will do our best to help and support you.

    Look forward to hearing more from you soon
