I have had RA since 2010. It took almost 2 years to get my meds where I felt better. During this time I managed to keep a full time job, doing heaving lifting and standing on my feet. Now I am 51 and work as a kitchen manager standing on my feet for up to sometimes 15hrs, doing heaving lifting and in and out of the freezer. I have had neuropathy in my feet for about 2 years but now all of a sudden it has gotten so much worse I cant hardly make it daily, its in my hands and I hurt all over. I am actully going to the doctor today to ask to be put on Leave of Absence to draw my short term disablilty because I cant stand to work anymore. I hurt all over every day almost like I have the flu, it hurts to walk and I feel like I am falling apart, and no one seems to understand. I am wondering if anyone else has had these problems. I am scared of not being able to work at all. I just dont know what to do and feel like I’m starting to get depressed. Any advice would be helpful.
