I've had Ra since I was 18. I'm on humira and it seems to work. But every once in awhile my joints on my wrists pop out. They literally stick out and it's very painful. I brought it up to my doc and he said it was nothing to worry about since it goes down after a week. I usually just have to rest my hands (which is hard to do since I'm in college and type a lot) but I was wondering if anyone else has dealt with the same thing. Just curious to see if someone else has magical wrists that pop out.

Hi there,

I would say that my toes are out of their sockets contantly as they form callouses under my feet, this is common with RA.

I haven't got popping wrists- so sorry you have this, it must be very painful.

I wonder if wearing wrist supports would prevent this.

Also you could enquire about Dragon- this is where you talk the words instead of typing them.

You could also get time extensions and other support if you informed your college.

Take Care of your self and take the assistance smurf

Dragon is a great program, but it does require some typing untill you are good at controlling the program. If you want to use it, I would reccomend that you begin the program well before you need it. Otherwise you will be upset how much time it takes to "speak" a paper and train the program to your speach patterns at the same time.
