Just wanting to touch base. I have recently been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis after 2 months of pain hell. As i was getting nowhere fast I decided to go private for a consultation with a rheumatologist. He was wonderful and referred within 2 weeks he had me referred to a specialist department. I was given an injection of steroid and an on-going treatment of pills, and withing 24hours I had my life back. After 4 weeks I am still suffering side effect from the pills, but they are a small price to pay to be able to regain use of my body. Wating now for the 1-month treatment check-up. 😊 :)
