    Hi Lesley

    Not a good time to have RA is it? Especially if things aren't under control as clinics seem to be few and far between.

    II am sorry you are having frequent flares and fatigue though - if it's not too nosey what meds are you on and what have you tried in the past?

    Take care

    Hi @Ljr, Toni is right, it’s not a good time to have RA with everything else that’s going on at the moment!

    The Versus Arthritis website has got a page of helpful tips and suggestions for self help that have been sent in by members - Have a look at the link below - perhaps you might find something that will help, and it might be an idea to have a word with your doctor or consultant - it might be that your meds need reviewing.

    Look after yourself,
