    I'm sorry for what you're going through, and I can totally relate. Are you taking anything for the RA and/or the back pain?

      yes I take methotrexate and plaquenil

        Do you feel like they're helping you? I didn't have luck with plaquenil for long, and struggled on methotrexate. It may have helped my RA, but the side effects were too much. I was getting methotrexate once a week, and I was so sick from it that at least 3-4 days out of the week I couldn't get out of bed and had to leave school. If that's not your experience than great, but you shouldn't stay on a regimen that isn't working for you. Have you tried anything to help you with your pain?

    everyone is different so it may work for them and may not work for you.. but it's like a guessing game keep trying until you find one that helps
