:cry: I was doing so well. Dr. put me on Prednisone and Methotrexate along with Plaquenil. I thought it was the magic combination because I was feeling great. But now I've totally backslid. I'm in so much pain again. Exhausted beyond belief. At least I had a about a week of hope. :cry:

I have one question, are you still on the meds or did he take you off?

Cinnamon;
Are you still in pain or has the medication been working for you? Your regimine of medications are prescribed to alleviate inflammation, pain and to supress your immune system - all of which should make you feel better.
Let us know how you are doing!!

I'm still on the meds. He increased methotrexate. It's been up and down. I'm going through some stress at home and that's not helping. (My DD has ADD and is having trouble in school) I had so much pain in my shoulder for almost 2 weeks. I just got a cortisone shot in it. Took the edge off but that's about it. :(
