Hi Theresa, That is good news to finally find out what is wrong with you. Now you can start the journey of getting propper treatment for your condition. Your holiday sounds really great. I am sure you and your family will have a great time relaxing over there. Enjoy your holiday. Take care. xx

RA is not good news, but it is so much easier to manage pain when you know what disease you have. Sorry, don't know anything about the Pain Clinic at Greenslopes.
Haven't heard of ketamine for R A. Have heard if one off ketamine injections for depression, so who knows! There are new drives specifically for RA, so hopefully they will be able to help you. Contacting the Arthritis Association like Mary suggested is a great idea.

Hi Theresa, Glad to hear you finally got the diagnosis. You should be able to plan for the future now. Once you see the specialist and get the right treatment, you should see a big improvement in your life.
