I was diagnosed officially by rheumatologist as having ra last tuesday 16th july. I am 31 and getting married end of september. I had pain in knees ankles, toes fingers and elbows. One finger was becoming misshapen.
I have been taken 20mg of Prednisolone daily, and 20omg of Hydroxychloroquine daily rising to 400mg after 2 weeks.
The plain has almost gone apart from stiff ankles in morning a dull ache in fingers. And im feeling almost normal.
Is this the steroids or hydroxychloroquine working or poss stress lifted of being diagnosed. Im only on the steriods for 10 days.
If it is the steroids and pain come s back can i request more just for wedding period.
Your thoughts and advice appreciated
