I don’t know anyone my age with RA. Can anyone relate?
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Chronic Generalized pain
Thanks buttercup! It’s rough out there lol
I was diagnosed with RA when I was 15 I'm now 35 bout to turn 36
DX at 15 about the be 36
I was diagnosed with RA at 17 now I'm 34
Diagnosed with RA at 15 now I'm 23. I know we aren't super close in age but I know what it's like to not know anyone in person with RA.
I don't know anyone who's as lucky in the health department as me.....and that makes me happy. I hate the hand I was dealt, but I wouldn't wish this on my enemies.
Wow I was 12 when I got Diagnosed it went into remission for some years after until I was about 30 and it's been hell every since. I'm now 52 . The flare-ups are off and on now worse being having to go to hospital when it it's all joints from head to toe that's happened like 7 times since I was 42
wow... I'm so sorry... I've had a rough few years not wanting to be on anything since I was preg and breastfeeding.. I'm so ready for my appt on the seventh to finally get on a treatment plan
I'm 37, diagnosed at 14. Open to chat if you're feeling lonely
I'm 48. I was just dx with RA 2 years ago. I haven't found any meds thatve helped so far, I have found 2 I'm allergic to tho. Next appt I'll be talking to my Dr about biologics.
sounds like a struggle! I hope you find a treatment plan that works for you soon
Dx 2013 , never a day without pain. My RA is tied to my Crohns. I used cbd and thc to help with pain. Honestly the last year has been rough and tired of pain.
I got diagnosed with RA at 15 and I'm 18 now and have only seen one other person in their teens years have it, it can feel isolating
and I've only seen them online lol never met anyone in person with it anywhere near my age
I was diagnosed at 15, I'm now 36 but I've only met one older lady that has RA , I've never met anyone other than her, but online thru this app I've been able to connect with a lot of ppl
Diagnosed in 2020 and now 24, I don't know anyone who's had this near my age, and it feels really isolating sometimes, I downloaded this app primarily because of this so I'm glad I found it :)
I completely understand that feeling. I was diagnosed at the age of 15 and it's an "invisible disease" so I looked fine but I couldn't move or do anything like everyone else my age. I was n a wheelchair for months, had to quit marching band and volleyball and decided to be homeschooled due to the fear of being picked on and judged.. I am now 36 so I've worked past all those issues but still it's hard when no one understands why u can't do things they can
exactly! And most people will say to me at least it's not cancer... like what? I even told a friend and she said "oh okay" like it's nothing, it's really exhausting!!
I'm 40 and was diagnosed at 9 yrs old didn't get flare until 2016 and now 2022.
what med helped ur flare??
I was put on Prednisone and that's what helped this time I'm on other medications doc don't wanna put me on steroids cause it affects my sugar.
They had me on Prednisone
I've never met anyone other than on this app that has RA other than an older lady up the street from me
I had juvenile arthritis at 9 and I just got diagnose with RA but with no marks.
