    Hello Jenpine, it's nice to meet you but I am sorry you have had to find us. This must be such a shock for you, I suppose that things have not been good for a while but to have this diagnosis is probably a bolt from the blue. I won't bombard you with questions but rest assured you are talking to the reluctantly initiated on here, I am 'enjoying' my 20th year of psoriatic arthritis and that has led in turn to OA so I have all bases covered. :wink: Please stay in touch, we know our stuff and can provide reliable information.

    Hello jenpine and welcome from me, too. I have RA also. I've had it for 55 years and not done at all badly on it but, if this has come as a bolt from the blue, you must be feeling quite bewildered and worried.

    I hope your rheumatologist can find a drug, or drugs, which help. I'm on a combination of methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine.

    Please join us on the other forums. We are very friendly so just join in wherever you wish :D
