I was diagnosed with RA in my late 40's, since I did not go right away to a Dr., when the pain started, I just ignored the system and continued on with my life, until one day the pain hit me like a ton of bricks. When I finally went to the Dr. I was diagnosed with moderate to serve RA, I tried everything in the book to alleviate the pain, eating foods to help with the inflammation it just seemed hopeless. RA took me from a wonderful career, took me from all the things I use to enjoy, I know I am not alone on this, it is not easy trying to manage this disease. It just seems to me the more you try to conquer this disease,the more it fights back with you.
When was your last flare?
