Hi Alley,
I have an idea of what you are going through. I am 35 yrs. old and have two boys. 3 1/2 and 9 months. I test negative for RA but my rheumy is pretty sure that is what I have. (since 2003) I've tried so many different medications and nothing has worked. He would like to put me on Methotrexate but I'm not quite sure if that is the path I want to go. I'm very frustrated and have tremendous pain....mostly hands/wrists, elbows and feet. Kills to pick up my baby everyday. I just want some relief!!!
