Inflammation, hum, sometimes my joints, esp. my knees and fingers get warm to the touch, but the main thing is pain with me and my muscles and ligaments with my RA. I like to use those things you can use for muscles that have the little magnets in them, they have stickies on them so they attach to your skin, they last 8 hours. They do wonders for me.
Diag. with RA/Felty's Syndrome January 99.
Previous meds-Methotrexate,(killed my immune system for 2 years) Enbrel,(didnt work) Humira, Ibuprofen, Arava,(allergic to?) Prednisone, Folic Acid.
Now only on Prednisone because of an allergic reaction they can't figure out, so Im heading to U.of I hospitals and clinics in Sept. for testing, new meds!? Who knows, who cares! Just want off steroids so I can lose weight.
