My aches and pains

I suddenly realized that there was something not right in the middle of July 2013. I was due to go and play a bowls league match and out of the blue I couldn't move my right arm. My shoulder was as if it had frozen and had to play left handed.

Then a few days later my foot had swollen so bad I couldn't get my shoe off I had to cut it off. And then I decided to go and see my gp he then took some blood test and the results came back that I had RA since then both my feet, knees, hips, hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and even my groin don't know if the groin is connected to it all but is sure does hurt still waiting to see a specialist.

I'm on steroids and each episode normally last about three days (is this normal?) And in two or three places at once. :((
