Trigger, I am sorry to hear you are feeling so poorly. I am personally fairly new to arthritis. But when I first started complaining of the constant pain, my Grandfather told me to take LYRICA. He said that it worked for him. He actually swore by it. I do not know, personally how it works, as I am currently just taking the meds my rhuemy is prescribing. But I do know I am definitly keeping My Grandfathers advice close to mind for a day when my rhuemy has "no prescriptions" that will help.
Maybe it will help you? You sound pretty active, thats great. I hope someone on here can help you, there are many kind people who have alot more experience and will answer your post soon. Take care, best of luck!
