We still Hope
my daughter who just turned 10 suddenly started having serious pains in her body.this pain is different
from that caused by SCD and is worse in the mornings,also defying analgesics and anti-inflammatories.
Are your symptoms anything like this?EDITH
Im really sorry to hear your daughter has so much pain in the morning that use to happen to me before I found out I had RA. What helped were heat packs, hot soaks or showers but they didn't always help. The morning after a transfusion I will hurt pritty bad for no reason and I start hurting every evening around 3-4pm and it continuse to get worse itll i finnaly fall asleep once morning comes i seem to do well after a nice hot showers till 3-4pm rolls around agian not sure what causes it but it puts me out of comission for a few hours at least every day. I call it Nap time Hee hee
I actually have a similar case. The rheumatologist didn't exactly diagnose me but I'm taking Plaquenil. It really is a pain but Im looking to hopefully come of it in the fall. I used to take celebrex or aleeve but I dont have joint pains anymore. I was on prednison for a short period of time.
My hem and rheumatologist are in the same clinic so I see them at the same time and they are able to communicate with them.
How are you coping now?
My Rhue Dr. has said my RA is very well controlled I am only on methotrexate now but I still have joint pain when it’s cold.
Hey Austyn, how are u, hope you are well? I recently got diagnosed with an auto immune issue as well and might be going on some meds to help, how have u been with your situation, hope there's has been some improvement?
