Just a few words to introduce myself:
Until recently I was pleaded with myself for still being so active in my 60's
Pride comes before a fall so they say: I have had pain and mobility problems since February and was diagnosed with RA 2 months ago.
My biggest problem is has been coming to terms with the fact that there are now some things I can no longer do willy nilly as I have done in the past but I am lucky in that I can still lead a fairly normal life.
I have nothing but praise for my local rheumy department and I attend exercise sessions at the hospital weekly.
A big plus is that I haven't sufferd any side affects from the methotrexate so far - fingers crossed.
This forum has been of immense help and encouragement so thank you all
