Hi I’m Steve. I have Rheumatoid arthritis. I had pain for awhile and chased my doctor to get it sorted. Before my Rheumatology appointment I kept a dairy of my symptoms etc. i had a blood test and nothing showed. Then I had a scan and I was called back 2 days later and started on methotrexate. This was March 2019. I then sort of ignored it for a bit. But in the August I had a massive flare and was off work for 3 months. During that time I did a pain management course, learned to pace myself, look after myself better and talked to my bosses in work(who were supportive).

i have had input off physio and a OT. Which has helped
