I'm seeing my Rheumy on the 24th of this month and I'm trying to make a list of questions for him. I also want to ask him about other TX options like Remicade but I'm trying to research some stuff first. Any advice.
Was just reading your posts, and please let us know what your doc says about all of this. I have both RA and thyroid issues, too. Also have a son with Type 1 diabetes. I was told that it's not uncommon to have more than one AI condition, but don't think anyone ever mentioned an underlying issue. Also, think from your earlier posts that we both started mtx and plaquenil about the same times, last appt with my rhuemy, she said that it usually takes about 3 months for plaquenil to kick in, so am trying to wait it out, but it's tough sometimes, isn't it? My next appt is the 24th as well. We should compare notes!
