Argh!! Dagnabit! I went to get some groceries, and everything hurts! Leg muscles are worst! I have to stop moving and let them rest a few, and my hips in agony. Sigh, I have such a fear of losing my mobility. I am so frustrated by this dang disease, I have a great rheumy and supportive husband but I still just feel like crying.

Sorry about the whine, I know we all have our burdens we're bearing.

Hey Dawn! Welcome to healing well :)! Glad you found us! Sorry you are hurting so bad. Don't loose hope just yet, give the plaquenil some more time to work!

I am just curious....does the ultram help you with the pain? Somethings I have found that help relieve the pain a smigin is staying under a heating blanket when possible, nice hot/warm epsom salt bath, or even plain ol aleve. I seem to get more relief from aleve than from ultram! Hope you start feeling better soon!

No the Ultram doesn't seem to be helping, neither does Aleve and other OTC drugs. I was taking way over the amount i should to ease pain, my husband wants me to call my doc in morning so she can try something else. Think I will try the heating blanket and warm epsom bath. Thanks for the cheer Aimsgirl16, needed it.
