Hi vicky sorry you were having a bad time , hope your feeling better. I've had R A for over 20yrs. It's quite normal to drop stuff or have week hands it's the inflamation in the joints that does it. The fatigue is also a large part of the arthritis.
Have you got a rheumatologist yet. What meds you on. I think if I were you I would go back to the Docs and ask for some pain killers. Paracetamol on ibuprofen is not strong enought to take away the pain, when you have a flare up
you are always welcome to come and have a rave on here there are some very nice people who are always willing to listen and offer advice and support should you wish it
take care hope you feel better soon

Hiya,

Im feeling a little better today but still very weak wrists. I weighed myself today n ive lost another 2lbs im now 5stone 6lbs (5 n half stone).

Hi Lynne, i have a rhmertologist who im due to see on the 18th august the only problem is i have a conflicting health problem and so until my heart team give go ahead i crnt go on any treatment as im also under investigation for possible heart surgery (it never rains it pours). My asthma has also flared up and im back on inhalours, seem i have bad luck with health!

Anyway take care,

I agree with Lynne, Ibuprofen really isn't strong enough, and it could be this that makes your asthma worse. I suffer from asthma and was told to be careful when I was taking them as it can make it flare up.

Take care xxx
