    Deannatrois, if you've been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis you really must try to take the drugs prescribed.  Pain killers are only helping with the pain, you need something to slow the disease down.  RA is a very serious condition to have, especially if left untreated.  I really don't want to worry you but it's not just joints that it attacks.  Why not go and have a chat with your GP about how your feeling? 
  • I have written to the hospital, written to my GP surgery, tried PAL, HealthWatch Uk, any organisation I could think of but there is nothing to help. So I will just have to deal with it.

    They should be able to help you. I know when we get a letter It gives you a number to phone if you have disabilities. My little boy is non verbal autistic and he hates going to appointments so they usually try and get him seen as quick as they can. It's not easy hun I really do understand that. RA needs treatment huni x
