Primary Physician Not Supportive

Primary Physician Not Supportive

My primary physician insist that I do not have RA. I see a new specialist next month, but I'm worried that I have already suffered some damage. He did Rx a pain cream, which helps very little. Has anybody else had this problem and did you find another physician?

What Things Do You Miss Being Able To Do

What Things Do You Miss Being Able To Do

Sometimes I see somebody do the simplest of things and I just think “oh, I wish I could still do that”

At the moment we are stock taking at work. I watch how the young staff members reach the bottom shelf by plonking themselves down on the floor, sitting cross legged and start counting. Me……..well firstly I can’t get down on the floor and even if I could I certainly couldn’t cross my legs (my knees won’t bend that much) and then somebody would need to haul me up again.

Another thing I miss is… read more

Short Term Disability From A Job (not State/Federal)

Short Term Disability From A Job (not State/Federal)

I just got denied for toe surgery because my school's disability carrier, Cigna, is considering it a "pre existing condition". I have to wait one year! I literally went to the dr with my twisted, arthritic toe ONCE and was told it needed to be surgically broken and pinned straight. That apparently constitutes "treatment". I'm numb. I'm in shock. I feel lost. I'm out of school on extended medical leave with no pay. I have no idea what to do. I heard state disability can take 1-3 years. Can that… read more

Yes it’s true I also collect disability from the day of my disease. I stop working in 1991. God bless you Arlene

Depression & Talking To Your RA Doctor

Depression & Talking To Your RA Doctor

For the last 3-4 weeks I have really been struggling with deep depression, crying, not eating, & excessive sleeping. I was diagnosed with RA about 2 years ago & presently taking methotrexate & prednisone. My question is, should I discuss my problems with my RA specialist or go to my family doctor. I just cannot deal with this depression much longer. My husband & others tell me to shake it off, but it's not that easy. Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A myRAteam Member said:

You need to see your family doctor and may need counselling and antidepressants. I believe that most people with a pain condition are on antidepressants because we’re depressed.
