Welcome to the forum, you will find the other members are friendly, offer you support and advice and will emphasis with you. I am one of the moderation team, we all have one or more of the Arthritis "hanger ons" or care for family with the same.
It is good to hear that you have good support with your hospital for your rheumatoid arthritis. It would be good if you posted again on the forum to tell us more about yourself and your experience of arthritis.
I look forward to reading your future posts.
I'm 72 and was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis some 30 years ago. My symptoms have been limited to swollen joints but during the last few months I have experienced considerable pain in my wrists. I have had physiotherapy and prescribed medication by a rheumatologist. Although I still experience some pain the treatment has been helpful.
