Hello :autumn-sun: , my name i Robert I'm 44 and was diagnosed with RA at the beginning of October. I had been struggling with sore knees, hands and really bad fatigue since March but was getting fobbed off by my doctor telling me it was everything but Arthritis for the first few months.
I had a steriod injection when I first seen the rheumatologist. I'm now on Hydroxychloroquine x2 a day and Methotrexate 10mg a week. All seems to be going well so far I've not had any side effects, my knees and hands are a lot better and my energy levels seem to be returning back to normal.
I was devastated when I first realised I had Arthritis as I've always been a keen runner and love doing Triathlons. The thought if not being able to do any of that anymore is not a nice feeling.
