Re: Arthritis at 41?
I've got an appointment with a rheumatologist tomorrow. I waited a few months to see that the meloxicam works, but I wasn't going to get better even if it felt like I was - the pills just cover it up, and if I don't take them it's welcome back shuffle the next morning. I just hope that the appointment is fruitful and he has some ideas of what's actually going on. I'm pretty sure it's not RA because there's no swelling or redness anywhere, just stiffness and pain. But on a bad day I'm using a cane to help hold myself up (after I gave in and bought it I realised just how long I've been hanging onto walls, window sills etc as I walk, and it's years not months!)
