I was diagnosed Monday after 6 months. Every day for the last 3 months were very painful. My knees were swollen, so it was hard to get anything done at home and spend time with my children. Thank goodness I have a great rheumatologist who knows what he’s doing.
Although I’m on medications all day and night, it’s worth it now. I’m very stubborn and I fight like a girl to do housework for my family! My words to keep moving! I do not wish this on anyone it kicks your a**!
