Hello Runaround, Teddybearweiser, Cbrossman and SydneyJo,
Thank you for responding to my post...I have to admit this disease has me scared! I am still on the Methotrexate, 8 tabs-once a week. My doctor is running Remi through my insurance company to see if they will pay for it.
I have noticed in the last week or so that both of my hands are stiffening up and are painful at times.
I have received a watch from my son's company that is made of surgical rubber with Germanium in it. I was truly surprised how wearing this watch has taken the pain out of my whole left side. I was in so much pain I could hardly bear it...at least now I can go to the grocery store without having to turn around and go right back out because of the pain.
I have heard some bad things about the Remi...some have said they almost died when given this medication. After reading some of the responses on this site I feel maybe there is hope for me. My son just had twin boys last week and my other son's little girl is due in July. I just want to be able to hold them, play with them and look forward to seeing them grow.
I have always been a very active person and this has slowed me down...changed my life. I find it hard to do much of anything at this time. I hope the Remi will help me to have a more mobile life.
