Hi my name is Kathy and i was diagnosed with RA 2014--I have been on several meds to no avail. My doctor decided to give me a holiday from all meds. I have been trying turmeric for inflammation which has helped a little. My question is should I be looking into some other areas of disease as well. In one and a half years, I have gone from being a vital person and now i can barely scrape myself off the couch to brush my teeth. I have to work full time as my husband is disabled with a traumatic brain injury. I am a nurse so i have to be on my game at all times at work. I can muster the energy for work and thats about it. I am struggling with intense fatigue, increase IBS symptoms, just wanna give up and cry. is there something else i should be having checked out....last RA factor was only 55. ESR fine ANA fine....my rheumy isnt much help.....I need some advice, any advice.............thank you!
