Living with RA
Hi I'm 57 and have recently back in March been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Everything feels really scary to me at the moment especially the future. I saw the rheumatologist last week who was absolutely disgusted that I haven't seen a doctor until now. He has put me on Prednisolone 20mg, I was wondering if anyone else are on this and what should I expect?
I had several x-rays carried out and more blood test on Tuesday, I'm back to see him on Thursday just wonder what type of life can I expect. Will I lead a relatively normal life with this disease. I feel really anxious and run down at the moment, unable to sleep at night. Can anyone shed any positivity on my situation as I'm finding it very difficult to deal with ?
