Hi everyone! I have just recently been diagnosed with RA. I thought I had a deadly disease for a while.
Has anyone ever had a problem with your hands going numb, especially at night?
I also am going to start Methotrexate, as soon as I get up the courage to do it. I read about it and it has so many bad side effects that I am a little hesitant to take it. Have a lot of you been on it? How was it?
My husband has been really good, but he feels that I am using RA to get out of doing things that I don't want to do. I find that with this sickness, noone thinks you are really sick because you don't look sick and sometimes you can do most everything. My mother-in-law told me she has arthritis too but she just doesn't let it get to her. I wish I could do that.
Overall I think I am doing OK, but it does kind of suck, some days.
