I too am only 29, and diagnosed last week. I thought I was initially suffering from RSI as I am a secretary, I was then told I had Tendonitus or a trapped nerve. However having a blood test revealed I had a very low rheumatoid count, and my grandmother has RA. I have very stiff/sore hands every morning, which has progressed from neck and shoulder pain, sore elbows, knees and feetwhich has now subsided since taking Devils Claw for just over 1 week and have noticed a difference. Its herbal and may be worth a try, as the Rheumatologist has suggested some very strong drugs that I am not sure I want to take.
