Hello, I am new to Ra .. in fact, I have not been diagnosed or tested for it yet. But I have some symptoms.. I am really worried about having it. Basically, terrified.. I .a very active person I like to run, play basketball jump rope etc. Could one have symptoms of Ra but could it be something not as gloom and doom? I am just so worried, I am not sleeping and I have constant anxiety. Also, if I do have it can I still be active and will I still be able to work? Also, do the meds for Ra take some of the symptoms away like pain and fatigue? Thanks for reading and posting. I truly appreciate it.
