I cringe every time I hear someone say that the weather doesn't affect the joints. I even read an article a few years back in the Arthritis Today magazine that said that! Whoever says that surely can't have arthritis. I have been doing really well on the Humira, but still can predict a storm two days out. You'd think these people would listen to us, I think we outnumber them.
Anyway - hope you all have a wonderful holiday and let's all hope and pray for a good New Year.
Snickers...A good rheumy is hard to find! Mine is okay, and has done all he can as far as meds, but there are days when I take a pain pill because I hurt so much. However, he has only prescribed prednisone once to me, and it seems no matter how much of a flare I'm in, he will not give it to me. It takes a lot to get a Medrol dose pack out of him There are other rheumy's in my area, but as long as this one is willing to treat my symptoms since I'm sero-negative I will stick it out. I'm afraid of switching because a new doctor may not be willing to do that.
It's okay to rant about our rheumy's and I do wonder if any of them have arthritis? Probably not!
