At 79 just been diagnosed with RA so at the trying treatments stage and concerns about long term lifestyle changes. I appreciate how lucky I am to get this later rather early in my life.

    Hi @Crowlebob

    Welcome to the community. It's good to hear from you!

    I hope you find the right treatment soon. (It can be a bit trial and error at the start but when you get the right combination it makes a huge difference).

    theres loads of helpful info. On this site and it was one of the first recommendations that my rheumatologist made, to go home and find this site. He was right!

    Wishing you all the best
