Read your story to Dennis.
On reading about your swollen knees, aspirations and injections and still riding your bike, I was dead impressed, so much so I am going to push the boat out and have a go myself now.
I have kept a diary of my diet and always monitered my food from the start, but have actually been scared of exercise, but no more.
Thanks for that.

It is now obvious that I thought my trails with arthritis were unique but after finding this forum I now realise that there are many,many people with the same story and in a far worse condition than I ever was.If my experience can help anyone else in the same situation I am more than willing to answer questions as to how I approached and overcame R/A

I get despondent due to fact im on Enbrel biloligcs, mTX all painkillers(opiates) and still in pain... I thought(wrongly) that the meds I was taking wld take away All probs....but was told by bio nurse that the Enbrel and MTX only protects the joints rom damage, I on top have a diseae that attacks the soft tissues, tendons etc, discs, so im suffering bad at mo.... had injection in shoulder, no diff, and acumpuncture, having more acupunture tomoz, that has helped in past with tennis elbow(tendonitis) but too about 9 sessions..... guess I get peed offf when I keep being told I need corrective surgery....cant see it will ever end...cant even enjoy being onlinem as neck and shoulders r so sore and tender, seems everything that is enjoyable in life, Im not entitled to have, for some rotten reason.... soz ona downer..... im usually Upbeat as most of u know....However, I will always say, MTX and the Bio meds r a godsend, at least part of me is ok.... wish they cld sort out the other part that isnt lol.....take care all Jill
