      I'm in the be same boat. So far I've been getting really down feeling like there is no end in sight. I'm trying to be patient as my rheumatologist said the medications can take a couple of months to be effective. Alternating Tylenol/Motrin and warm baths helps with the body aches.

      It’s a really tricky question. It took me a long time to get my diagnosis which I finally got in 2018.

Fatigue and brain fog are two of the hardest things to fight. The medications/lifestyles that help people are so individual. For me, injectable methotrexate and chloroquine helped he most with my joint and skin, but the chloroquine takes a while to notice- like 6 months- the methotrexate 6 weeks but youre nauseous as you gain the tolerance. I had to get FMLA for work cause sometimes you just cant
