As the title says I am having a bad one today, feel really down and unhappy about this whole situation, fed up being sore, tired and unhappy. But just need to get on with it I suppose. :cry:

    Hi Tinydancer,

    Sorry to hear you are feeling this way. I don't know what your medical condition is and I understand if you don't want to share this, but I hope you feel better soon.

    Take care

    Hi Sarah,
    I have RA, take sulph and naproxen and just stared few weeks ago on hydroxychloroquine. Pain is mainly in my hands, y'day I woke for the 1st time in months with no pain in them, was so happy but back to same old pain today.
    I have been getting a lot of pain in my shoulder and down my right arm as well for months now, been to physio twice and back today. Just feel like this pain is never going to leave.

    Hi Tinydancer,

    So sorry to hear you are suffering with RA. I have OA in both hips, had my 1st THR 6 weeks ago. My aunt has RA in her feet, knees and hands and although I am not experienced with RA, I know a little about what you are going through.

    Before the THR I was the same as you, had good days and felt great, unfortunately these were at the start and as the OA progressed, the good days turned into bad.

    Stuggling with my recovery after the THR but I am hoping everything will sort itself out soon.

    Take care and I hope you feel better soon :D

    Hello Tiny Dancer,

    Feel free to keep sharing the frustrations.... many of us here have RA and are only too aware of how it can get you down.

    Sending gentle hugs {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{ }}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}. Hope the meds kick in soon, but don't despair there are many different meds out there which can help and it takes a while for all of us to find the right combination.

    Hi Tiny Dancer
    Sorry you are having such a rough time.....I have OA socant comment on RA much
    I'm 4 weeks post THR {2nd one}
    We all get those days.......you feel great then you feel rubbish
    You just have to try and think of things you can do when you feel like that. Distraction.....what do you like doing?
    I know its easier said than done
    Hope you have a better day tomorrow

    Love
    Hileena

    I agree with the distraction post. Find something you love and do more of it. Reading often works for me, I remove myself from my own body and imagine being in someone elses pain free body. Often with RA we have good days and bad days. Take advantage of the good days and enjoy every moment of them, and on the bad days hunker down and pamper yourself. Do what ever makes you feel better, don't feel guilty about doing nothing or pampering yourself! You are worth it!!
