Having a hard time today with RA

Posted , 3 users are following.

Does anyone know of company offering package breaks to places with hot springs e.g. Hungary or similar?. i ache all over at the moment and heat is the only way I can get some relief but our bath is not deep enough to submerge and I have difficulty getting out even with an inflatable cushion as my hands and wrists are so weak.

Have tried Methotraxate, Lefluveane - if that's how it's spelt - and am now 6 weeks into Cimzia injections so waiting for an improvement. Any info welcome.

    I find heat helps a great deal too so I am about to join total fitness again to use their saunas and hydrotherapy. Its so worth a fiver a week to be able to go in the any day and every chance I can get there! Last time I joined I felt great and it lastd well after my membership ran outso its gotta be worth a try!
