I was diagnosed with RA five years ago. I take enbrel along with methotrexate and some days would just love someone to ask how I am feeling. I am a school teacher, mom, and wife too. My days are so busy and there are nights I just collapse from exhaustion. My family has never asked how I am feeling and that hurts. Anyways, there needs to be more said about RA so that others know how sad it can make us all feel at times. I am sending warm thoughts to all others this holiday season. Maybe Santa will give everyone around us a bit more compassion.View Thread
Gosh, my feet are what hurt me the most too. Nobody seems to have RA in their feet but believe me, I have so much pain there as well. I have found that some metatarsel supports for the insides of your shoes will help. I cannot run or jog anymore because me feet are so painful. I am thinking about you and your sore feet.View Thread
