Hi Sam,

I'm so sorry that you have RA, another diagnosis added to your list.

I don't know too much about RA, but I know it can cause swelling/pain in your joints which can be horrendous.

 

Take good care of yourself, you are in my thoughts.

Well that's not what you needed to hear. Sorry to hear about your additional diagnosis of RA. That definitely could be the cause of much of your pain. We do have some information on rheumatoid arthritis. You might find the treatments section interesting. I know most of the other patients in the infusion lab are RA patients and they are getting Remicade which they appear to love for its ability to greatly reduce the pain. I'm sure your research has only just begun. Hope you find something works for you.

Sam,

 

I'm so sorry to hear of your new diagnosis. My mother and I both have systemic diffuse sclero with a RA overlap. So once again, please know you are not alone! You're in my thoughts.


Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

 

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

RA isn't my idea of a good time, but at least you know what you have and can do the research... checking the link that Janey posted for you.

 

It's almost as though we could say to the doctors, "Okay, so what DON'T we have"?

 

I hope the medication your doctor just prescribed works for the pain, Sam.

 

Take care,

Susie
