Wlcome to the forum. like you, I was just diagnosed in late April and have been taking MTX for 3 1/2 Months. I starting taking Plaquenil about six weeks ago and although I haven't found any relief with the Plaquenil the MTX has been working. Eventually you will have better days so hang in there. I see you are from Nova Scotia. I am also in Canada, Ontario actually. I hope you find this site as informative and supportive as I have. You can e-mail anytime. It's good to vent sometimes.
Take Care all and be well.
Thanks for your reply and welcoming me to HW. Yes it's very hard to be impatient when you have always been a healthy person and then WHAM you're hit with this. I guess I worry sometimes I'm never going to feel any better, but I know with the support of this wonderful, beautiful group of people like yourself I will be positive and try and keep it in my mind that things will get some better. I know they are making great progress with this disease so that's good.
How are you feeling? And where do you have the arthritis?
Hope you have a good day Yalinda and talk to you soon.
