Hi everyone,
My son sent me to this sight for moral support.
I was diag. with RA and Felty Syndrome in Jan 99. Been a rough few years. Lost my job, been on Metho. Enbrel, Humira and lots of steroids! AH weight gain!
Have 3 sons, 16, 11 and 23 and a wonderful husband who works 2 jobs to support us since I seem to be unemployable. ha
Does anyone have Feltys Syndrome? only 1% of RA patients have it. Would love to talk to someone who does.
