Im 27years old, diagnosed with RA. Im scared because this is incurable and can demobolize me at some point. It has only been a day since my diagnosis. I have joint pain in my hip, shoulders, wrists, ankles, and knees. I saw my primary doctor and a blood test was taken along with x-rays. From the blood test I was told that I have RA. (Is this possible at my age?) My grandmother has RA and I was told that is a possible reason why I now have it. My major concern is having to have to take medication for the duration of my life.
