Hi I'm new
I have been diagnosed with RA, I will be seeing a rheumatologist on Wednesday for the first time.
initially they gave me steroids, which have now run out, and I am having another flaire up, this time in my right knee and right shoulder where I can't lift my arm. I phoned the doctor yesterday to be told use the e consult on Monday. In the mean time all I have is co codimol tablets, and in all honesty they are hardly touching the pain. I am 60 years old, this RA has made me think about my job (I am a warehouse manager), where we are quite physical most days, usually doing over 10,000 steps by tea break or lunchtime. I am hoping once I can get on medication it will ease these flaire ups and make my RA more managable. I really don't want to give up a job I love.
