Hello. I just found this page and I'm newly diagnosed with RA. There's been so much, so fast! I've only been on Methotrexate for 1 month. I don't know anyone with RA and it's hard for me to believe that all of the things I'm dealing with are caused by RA. I took the word "fatigue" lightly before now. I'm seeing no relief from the meds yet, but I've gotten to know my bed very, very well. I'm fortunate that I have a job that I can work from home, but my quality of life is sucking right now. I'm only able to be up and around for about 2 hours, max before I swell like a puffer fish and my fingers and toes turn blue and I have to lie down for 4 hours to get relief! Someone, please tell me it gets better. I am 44 years old with a 6 year old daughter that needs me. I'll take ANY advice!!!
