Hi I'm female58 I was diagnosed last March after a very stressful time. Since then I was put on Hydroxochloroquine which made my legs ache,so now I'm on Methotrexate which I am tolerating. Over the last 5 months I have been experiencing horrible calf pain where my lower legs spasms. I explained this to RA nurse but to no avail. Been to my GP who sent me to physio and I have also paid private. Still no further forward. Sciatica mentioned but would this last this long? I'm quite a tough cookie but its really getting me down now. I just want to know what this is and feel I am just being passed over and offered painkillers, but for what? Sorry for the negative post ,but is anyone else experiencing this,any remedies greatly appreciated Judith
