Hi I was diagnosed with ? RA in November 2014 on my first visit to see Rheumatologist. Following lots more tests, this is now confirmed. I started with symptoms mainly hands fingers wrists. A few days before I saw consultant I had pain in ever joint. Any movement was painful. I was put on 15 mgs of steroids, which helped enormously. The side effects were nearly as bad as the RA. The dose was reduced to 10mgs, which has improved the side effects. In the last month I had 2 flare ups, first hands wrists elbows and shoulders. Second flare was every joint again which lasted a week. I see Rheumatologist next week and wonder what might happen now. I have other health problems. What questions should I be asking please. I am making a list to help me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
