I'm newly diagnosed and new to this group. So good to know there are people out there who understand how I feel - pretty devastated actually.
I'm a hiker and cyclist, have been for years and cannot imagine not climbing to see the view at the top of a mountain again.
The frustration of fatigue, swelling and pain are soul destroying.
I have a consultation with my rheumatologist in 2 weeks to talk about DMARDS.
I really need some positive support. I know it will be a struggle, but I also know that there are people out there who are living life to the full - advice and encouragement are very much needed at this time 😊
