My hips/back, shoulders/arms, hands and feet are the worst, (in that order) but I always feel the RA all over my body. In Sept 2009 was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, also. Neither pain never seems to fully go away. I'm very grateful I was a very positive person before 'ugly arthur' showed up, because it helps me through the toughest times (sometimes, hehe).
I love music, cats, swimming, yoga & my husband. I'm always trying new ways to take the pain away, or to just dealing with living with RA (and Fibro). Those who don't have it can't understand, and it seems too different for those who do have it. I'm looking to connect with others with severe RA.
Also, my parents passed away recently (yes it is still recent to me). Mom 8/18/08 from awful bone cancer and Dad 8/29/08 from awful heart disease & broken heart. Mom was only in her 60's, Dad in his early 70's. NOT FAIR. I've been sad & angry since, yet hiding it well most of the time. It really does wonders for joint & muscle diseases, let me tell ya.
I hope everyone out there with chronic pain has some peace today.
