Rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis
I'm 33 and was just diagnosed with severe RA. I am a newlywed that is hoping to start my family in the next year. I have chosen to postpone treatments until I have children, due to the dangers the medicine poses to the unborn child. We aren't planning to get pregnant tomorrow, but hope to start within the next year. The pain is becoming unbearable. I have taken several rounds of prednisone and take non steroidal anti inflammatory twice a day. Does anyone out there have any suggestions to help with the pain? Can anyone else relate to my concerns of taking treatments while trying to plan having children? I feel lost and confused. Thanks in advance!
