I know how you feel... about waiting to get into a RA Dr. I had to wait a long time too. I did get in a little earlier by getting on their cancelation list. You might try that. When I was finally diagnosed with RA it was such a relief to have a name for the pain I was going through. You'll have to read some of my earlier posts. I couldn't hardly do anything. Now with the help of my med's and a very good RA Dr. I'm functioning again. The med's my Dr. put me on are these: Humira self injections every other week, Prednisone 5mg once a day, Ketoprofen 75mg twice a day and Hydroxychloroquine 200mg - 2 once a day. Now I don't know what the future holds for me and my RA, but so far... these med's are working for me. I know it's hard to deal with right now, but hang in there. There is a lot of good help out there, and this board is great for support.
