Thank you redrose, Hippi, doodlebee, Barb & Ohio, you ladies are wonderful. I know I can always count on ya'll. I get tired of complaining to my hubby and sometimes I just want to shut down and not tell him how I am really feeling. I have never felt like this before, I think I just have so much on me right now and my body is paying for it. I am so overwhelmed, I feel like I could explode...... not a good feeling.
I could not imagine having both lupus and RA
I have often thought about
that and have asked my rheumy, she says it's all lupus. I guess I shouldn't complain, things could all be worse and thankfully I have seen an improvement in my pain since being in MTX.
Right now I am taking Darvocet and it hardly does a thing, I have to take 2. I can't take Lortab or anything with codeine, it makes me itch like mad!!!!
Doodlebee, I get those same pains in my legs and the only way I could explain it was, it felt like it was "bone deep". I am sure it's related to lupus, but you should still mention it to your doctor.
Barb, I am going to go to the store tomorrow and will look for the balm and thank you for the offer. I am so excited to meet everyone too, it will be a blast. I am only on 7.5 mg of MTX and thinking about
asking for more to see if it helps.
Thank you again for everything! Hugs and love to all
p.s. MTX is Methotrexate
