hi hope everybody is well i havent been to bad over the last few weeks arms and fingers always sore but nothing i cant handle.I have ra in my fingers hands and arms plus my back,so why is it when i take a day off from work,after working long hours for the last ten days i feel lousy all day and end up spending the day in bed feeling shattered,stomach sore elbows and back aching.Is it all in my head?Would i just get on with it if i was at my work?has anybody else experienced this?i feel today has been such a waste of a day.sorry to moan helend

hi

i may be wrong but maybe when you are at home you are more relaxed so maybe brings on more pain? its just a thought cos i am sometimes worse at weekends when i dont have to work, migraines work that way they come on when you are relaxed so maybe RA works the same way, hope you feel better tomorrow x

hi, hope your feeling better today, i know what you mean about having a day of doing nothing but sometimes we dont have a choice, and you always know the housework will be there tomorrow,health and listening to you body comes first,i hate mess and bit and dust but somedays it just has to stay there, take care at work today and let me know how you are. athena :)

I know exactly how you feel,its horrible sitting there looking at your messy house and not being able to do anything about it,im dreading going back to work as i dont think they will tolerate me taking days off when im bad they are not very sympathetic,i think if you had struggled at work by the time you had got home you woud be in agony,hope you feel better soonx
