Welcome cm, sorry you are hurting!
You may be hurting more because your prednisone has been stopped. Soaking in a hot
bath helps me. I do take muscle relaxers when needed and I try to get some excercise.
Pacing yourself is very important. Don't overdue, rest as needed.
My pain level does not coincide with my bloodwork. Has your rheumy prescribed a calcium
channel blocker for your Raynauds? I am on Diltiazem and it seems to be helping.
Know you are among people who truly understand
possible MCTD, Raynauds, Fibromyalgia, Osteoporosis, Degenerative
Disc Disease, Osteoarthritis, High Blood Pressure, Migranes and
Pseudothrombocytopenia, biopsy shows a Scleroderma variant
