I am a 74 year old male and until 4 weeks ago I was proud to say I have never had an illness nor been to a hospital or doctor because of poor health or injury. Came back from a UK holiday with a nagging sore left shoulder, a few days later my left knee felt strange as if I had fallen, then my wrists and finger stiffness. Why so sudden to an otherwise fit and active still working person. Why to a guitar player and golfer, never smoked and weight as it should be for my build. The blood test confirmed what my family Doc suspected, but it is not an age thing, they say possibly environmental, I have always lived in rural locations and eaten fairly healthily. I will accept that there are far worse diseases and deal with this. Seems like all of us ask, why in this day and age can brilliant medical scientists not find the reason for RA and other common deadly diseases.
Sorry for the rant, I am new to this , I will try to be halpful from now on.
