    Hello all,

    Just found the forum today. Have been looking for a place to discuss and get advice and hopefully help others.

    My journey this point has been long. Had arthritis as a child and suffered through early twenties. My Rheumatologist diagnosed me with Rheumatoid. Pretty much lived with flares throughout my life and just gave it to the old diagnosis. Had a right knee replacement in 2014 and putting the left one off till pushed by dr. Then in 2017 I started having all types of different problems. Have been treated for over a year for plantar facsiatis and have had a horrible time with both feet. Then I started having psoriasis breakouts. I had never had them before and my Dr sent me to a Rheumatologist, I hadn’t been to one for many years.

    What a surprise, after much blood work and discussions with my new RA Dr, I guess I had been mis-diagnosed for a long time.

    Starting Enbrel next week and have so many questions.

    I look forward to learning from those that have more experience with all of this.

    Thanks, Mitzi
