just diagnosed

I am 66 years old and finally have a diagnosis for all this pain I have been packing around for years.

  1. I will say congrats although hit doesn't seem really like the right word. 😀 It's good though that you finally have an official diagnosis because it means you can start on the trial and error of RA meds until you find the right one for you. Let us know if there's anything we can do in the meantime, and remember you're not alone! Keep on keepin' on, DPM

    1. , hello and welcome to the community! While I wish there was no such thing as RA and we had no need for a community such as this one, I am glad you found us. I don't know how you're feeling about your diagnosis, but I can tell you that whatever you are feeling, it's normal and okay! Whether you're mad or relieved or confused or numb, all of those feelings are valid. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. We're happy to help in any way we can. Best, Erin, RheumatoidArthritis.net Team Member.
