Hi All,
I managed to see the rheumatologist earlier than my original appointment. All that he would commit to is that I do have an autoimmune disease, but he's not saying which one until he gets all the bloodwork back. In the meantime, he put me on a NSAID called Relafen for the joint pain. I had never heard of it before. The first couple of days, it made me very sleepy, but I think that I'm adapting. The awful thing about it is the fact that it gives me major indigestion. I think that it is helping a bit. The knee isn't in constant pain - just part of the time. I think that the chest pain has lessened a bit also. Has anyone else had any experience with this one? Does it tear up your stomach? How safe is it for the digestive system over the long term? Thanks for any feedback,
Marla
