Has anyone dealt with joint deformity, or muscle weakness? What have you done to help these things?
hi im girly28, i was diagon with a severe case of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis as a young child was on methotrexate and humira for 6 years. I've been in remission for a few years but am struggling to deal with the aftermath. Especially since i found out that i have fibromyalgia. I also have a lot of struggles with mental illness due to my physical sickness. Here to talk and finally meet people i can relate too.
I have RA/JIA and insomnia and I have big trouble with falling asleep, does anyone with any type of chronic pain condition have any advice for falling asleep? I take melatonin and CBD and occasionally benadryl or cold and flu, but it doesn't seem to help enough.
Hey, I’ve had JRA for most of my life now, and I still have a hard time doing highly active things, how do you guys stay active and deal with the pain/soreness the days after?
I'm struggling with starting to get more active and work out because of my pain levels. I try and do yoga but get defeated easily because I can't do half of the positions due to pain. What do you guys do for exercise when your pain levels are high?
What Symptoms am I too look out for as my future progresses?
What has worked best for you in terms of reducing inflammation/pain?
