this RA flare up is no joke 4 am and I can't sleep because of the pain stiffness 🥺
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Chronic Generalized pain
Chronic Pain in Thoracic Spine
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?
I was given Diclofenac didn't take not one pill I seen the side affects and they were horrible so I got scare to take it
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
