I'm a 34 year old guy. I was diagnosed with RA last year and have been taking methotrexate for 3-4 months now. I been through some hi stress levels over the last 10 years...but in recent years a lot happened , prem little one and dad dying at the same time. Also I work week of day week of nights rotating and my sleep pattern is terrible!!! I'm also on call at weekends. I work on the motorway in a big lads environment. The outcome I guess has been a heavy bought of RA. I now seem to live on codeine which I feel I'm addicted too. Only take 2-4 a day but they do help.
Any other shift workers out there? How do the shifts impact your RA? Think I need to re - train in another career eventually.
