Hi all, I’m new here. I’m Karen 58, from England. I have had RA for 10 years now but lately, it’s been getting worse.

Fatigue with rheumatoid arthritis

I think the fatigue is the hardest thing to deal with but the pain is on par. I just need someone who understands. Unless you have it you can’t imagine what a debilitating disease it is. It makes me feel old before my time.

Methotrexate for treatment

I take methotrexate weekly but it doesn’t stop the pain. Having said that, without it I wouldn’t be able to do the things I can do now.

Thank you for accepting me into your forum, I look forward to making new friends and knowing I’m not alone.
