Who woulda thought....
20 years at sea US Navy, 7 years hanging sheetrock, three violent motor vehicle crashes, not to mention all the drunk and stupid things I did. Well, in 1999 things really started to hurt, wrists, knees, shoulders, back. I attributed it to the aforementioned activities. Finally, in 2011 I was diagnosed with RA. I stayed with treatment (sulfadine and folic acid), for a year, figured I can beat this. Well, last year I had an attack that started in February and didn't let up. Finally my primary got me a referral to a Rheumatologist because of my high markers. Basically where I am now. Being treated with Methotrexate and folic acid. The fatigue is annoying, the more I read about RA the more depressed I became, so I stopped. I try to eat healthy, and I stay pretty active with work and my hobbies. It ain't easy with this stuff called RA.
