Thank you so much for the replies!
Joy, I have fibromyalgia also so it adds to my discomfort. I also have Sjogren's that currently is really flaring.
Laura, I'm so glad to hear your mega flare subsided. It gives me hope!
Nicole, usually rheumies try plaquenil, then methotrexate, Imuran, and then, if those don't work, they pull out the big guns (biologics). Plaquenil takes up to six months to work and my rheumy has kept me on plaquenil for years and adds other meds to it. CellCept actually helps my cognitive function.
Yes, it sounds bad to say this, but I'm glad I'm not alone. Love, Donna
