    Hello and welcome from me too. I also have RA and OA. I take methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine and, on the whole, they work very well for me. How about you?
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Hello, I have psoriatic arthritis which in turn led to OA. My asthma and eczema are no trouble now thanks to the meds for the PsA (no immune system, no trouble) so in that sense the quality of life has been improved but on the other hand it has been destroyed by constant pain and tiredness. :lol: I'm in the early days of my 23rd year (I am now 60) so know what's what and how to manage.
