Need Advice

Last updated: March 2023

Hi, I’m Kim I got rheumatoid arthritis when I was 22 years old.

Finding the right RA medication

Been on so many different meds after a while they stopped working.

I’m on Rinvoq it’s not helped me at all.

Been on methotrexate which made me feel sick all the time. I got taken off that, so I’m on Rinvoq.

I have a rheumatoid arthritis appointment tomorrow. Hoping to be out on something better.

The physical and mental symptoms of RA

I’m in pain every day. My legs and knees hurt. I have osteoarthritis too. Being in pain makes my depression worse.

I’m finding it all hard and it makes me emotional too.
