Have not started back on the treadmill yet, but planning to. Finally got the room cleared out so I just need to push myself to start. I know I used to feel better when I did get on it. Planning on watching what I eat more. Seems foods can trigger RA, foods that are processed and fried are bad.
Started back selling on Ebay (purple0906) so we shall see how that goes. Also looking for a part time job for nites and weekends.

Hope everyone has a good day!!

    The treadmill is a good idea and yes, you will feel better for the endorphins you release when you exercise. emoticon

Day 5 on medication

Thursday, November 07, 2013

It's been 5 days since I started the medication for the Rheumotoid arthritis. The pain is not so bad and I have been able to lift my arms. Went for the blood test on Monday, waiting for the doctor to call back with the results.

Hope everyone has a great Thursday

    What medication do they have you on? I too have rheumatoid arthritis...not a great thing to have but the good thing was that I wasn't going crazy (I was beginning to wonder about myself!). I have been on a variety of medications for about 2 years. It has helped...getting orthotic shoes helped my feet immensely. Just wondered what they started you on.


PS - Glad you had a great thanksgiving. So did we!

Rheumotoid Arthritis

Saturday, November 02, 2013

Went to the Doctor's yesterday. New Doctor, my old one could not keep his practice and moved his family back to Virginia. Have to say, I really like him. He took his time, talked to me, has a personality too. My right arm has been giving me a lot of problems for a while now, but it got to the point where I could not take the pain, could not open doors, pick up stuff that finally made me go. I also noticed another node on my first knuckle. To start, I will need a blood test, its to see/confirm I have Rheumotoid Arthritis. In a month will have a full physical (which I can't remember the last time I had one). He is also putting me on a mild medication for the swelling. If this does not help, then will have xrays, MRI done. I am so glad he also treats for back pain, so maybe now will get some help.
Hope everyone has a safe and great weekend!!!!!

    Sometimes a change in Doctor's is a blessing, I myself have had all of what your about to go through and still next week a visit with a Rheumatoid Arthritis Doctor at the Hospital for an update on my condition.

Wishing you the very best ! emoticon emoticon
