      yes some doctors know more or are more experienced than others my mother is a rheumatologist and i see a separate one outside of her but i still have her do managing of my medications since i’m a minor it’s good to have multiple opinions sometimes

      I should have phrased differently. I’m not in an trial I’m just still trying to find the right medication that works for my symptoms and doesn’t cause a reaction. I’ve been at it for about 13 months and am currently now about to try my 5th medication because I haven’t had success. Humira was the first one that I tried.

      No. You could be in the group that sadly got the placebo. ❤️ when the trial is done, ask to be put on a more well known medication for your condition.
