Hello and Welcome Seashell: :)
Goodness, you certainly have had more than your share of conditions/diseases/ailments.
So sorry to hear of what you have been experiencing.
I've had severe RA for 34 years. Only a few medications have worked for me since I am resistant(refractory) to the rest, including all the biologics, as you are. Methotrexate, Indomethacin, Myochrysine, Vioxx, Imuran, Prednisone, have all helped to put me into remissions which was great, of course. Imuran was actually the last one that worked for me
until a few months after my brother died in 2005. I was in remission for about
I've been on Xeljanz since mid April which works about
70% for me. I'll take it. Mind you I am also on Morphine which helps also, a lot better than the Tramadol used to.
Before the Xeljanz and Morphine, I suffered the past 10 years while on Prednisone, Indomethacin, Tramadol, Methotrexate and various biologics.
I will continue trying new meds for RA. I hope you will too, Seashell. There is always a chance of hope and finding a drug that works for us. There are more RA medications
coming done the pipeline. I'm praying that you will be getting out of that wheelchair
and walking, as you used to. Keep us updated please and enjoy your day as best you can. :)
