I've suffered from RA for 12 years now, and until about 2 years ago, it didn't control my life. I had a hip replacement three months ago and scheduled for other hip in 5-6 months. I'm only 43 and I feel 90 some days. For the past year or so my arms hurt all the time, and I have no strength at all in them. It hurts to dress most days, and I have limited mobility in arms as well. I still take Celebrex twice a day, but I went off Methotrexate & Plaquenil before my hip surgery and have felt no difference so I have stayed off them, my rheumatologist doesn't know yet so we'll see what he says next visit.
Does anyone have any suggestion what to do for the pain. It's so depressing being so weak. I'm also under weight by about 15-20 lbs and trying to put weight back on but don't know how. If anyone has any suggestions to help please I'd love top hear them!!
