1 step forward 2 back 😥

They say things always happen for a reason !! Well I think this saying isn't always kind when you have Athritis.

How many times can someone get up brush themselves down and carry on ? Fed up with one treatment for one thing then another any one no where I am with this ?

I'm feeling low right now have RA in flare , fibromyalgia in flare and just had an emergency mri yesterday for my hip and other conditions ...this year has been rubbish been in hospital after collapsing in pain long story short have FND now am so exhausted with it all , but after not being able to use my right leg at all had great rehab team at home who have got me back up.Still not able to return to work or even drive right now.

Has any one else been or are going through any of this I would love to have someone to talk to 🙂

    Good Morning @Runningtheratrace70 Welcome from me too.

    I have just done a very quick search for you on FND and got these results:

    I think the first few actually relate to FND, the others are typos. One or two of them may still be regular posters I think @Jewels is still a fairly regular poster.

    Be really useful to speak to someone who also has Arthritis I'm sure.

    Best wishes
