welcome to the forums lovely to have you here, I am sure some of our members will share their experiences and ideas with you. We also have a section on the website that might interest you
being a mum is tough enough without having arthritis as well, you might also like to phone our helplines on 0800 520 0520. Please ask as many questions as you like
Welcome from me too!
Lovely to see you both and wonder whether this person
might also enjoy a chat with you Mums with young ones?
(interfering again I am!!)
Maybe you should start a discussion for Mums with arthritis and then you can all meet together when you can get/need a break!
My daughter in law is going to be induced next Wednesday so we shall meet Evelyn (I think) soon. I shall be caring for the 2 sibs and getting them to school on time, I used to be good at this, I'm sure I can do it!
Enjoy your new discussion!
Hi Lucy and welcome to the Versus Arthritis forum.
I’m sorry to hear about your situation, it must be very frustrating for you to have appointments being continually postponed, unable to go back onto your medication and just relying on painkillers.
There’s a wealth of information about managing pain on our website which may be worth your while browsing, you could start here https://www.versusarthritis.org/search?query=RA+Pain+Relief
You can also call our free Helpline on 0800 5200 520, or email [email protected] (Mon - Fri 9:00am – 8:00pm) if you ever feel they could help.
I hope you receive some useful feedback from other forum members.
