Evening, my name is Tom.

I had an accident last year and that has made me more aware of my body. I had from a young age "writers cramp" so prefer to use a keyboard, but that leads to eventual pain in the hands.

I have had back pain for years on and off, but not like the last year. I have been treated for "unexplained Neuropathic pain" in my lower back, muscle weakness in both legs. But it's since the pain in

I've done a lot of research and noticed that some cases people have had Neuropathic pain.

For the past nearly 2 years, I've been fobbed off with "unexplained" until now a GP wanted me to have a x-ray and blood test done specifically for RA, what did people experience prior to a diagnosis and how do people manage the pain they experience?
