I’m an infrequent visitor to this Forum, but always find it interesting and useful. So am looking for some info / advice.
I’ve had an RA diagnosis for about a year. My mobility has gradually decreased and I can’t really walk anywhere now, can’t do normal household tasks, and feel like a 95 year old ( I am 58). This is no way to live, and although I am in awe of people who have lived like this for years, and remain positive, my choice would be different. So my question is how long does it take from diagnosis to get symptoms under control, to get the right drug cocktail etc? (on average) . If I thought this wasn’t going to improve then I would want to seriously consider if this quality of life is worth it. COVID 19 has put a brake on treatment (no steroid injections and no starting Methotrexate) but - that aside - am I looking at 1 year, 2 years? Interested to hear other people’s experience of how long from diagnosis to (successful) treatment? Thanks
