Subject: Looking for answers
Hi I am 30 years old. I was diagnosed with RA in March 2010 I was put on Salazyprin. My most recent flare up has been unbearable. After seeing consultant this week they have given me another steroid injection to control the pain etc to get me through my wedding in a couple of weeks.
They are talking about having methotrexate but are reluctant as i would like children. So going back in December to discuss further
I am trying to find out why this has happened. Since 1999 i have had 3 mini strokes and was treated and operated for inappropriate sinus tachicardia. 2 years after all clear i have RA.
My parents are in 51 and are well. Dad diabetic. Mum had alopecia 15 years ago.
On reading about alopecia this is caused by immune system imbalance... is this linked do you think??? Was my heart probelm do to with RA??
If any one can help or share a story similar to mine it would be much apprciated.
