Yesterday was really a challenge for me. I had increased pain.
I know that I am not doing well when my right shoulder starts bothering me. My right shoulder usually is silent. So here I am with increased pain. My hands hurt. My wrists hurt. My feet feel weird and my ankles hurt.
Why more pain?
The worse part is I am back to feeling like the walking dead. I had a very hard time getting through the work day yesterday. It is discouraging.
I hope today is better.
I researched the progression of RA. Not much help as the professionals deal so much in generalities. They are vague.
I have read a lot of comments from individuals with RA. It is helpful to me to know what is happening to real people with RA. This is a scary disease as it is unpredictable.
I make progress. Then suddenly something changes. Something new. Something worse. Like yesterday.
I am reassured by the determination of others with RA. It helps me when I feel discouragement.
