Hi -- it's Ellie. I want to give a special thanks to all of you who welcomed me into the group.

I have a question for anyone who cares to answer it. It concerns meds. I am currently taking only Plaquenil for my severe joint pain. It works better than nothing, but I really think I could feel less pain than I do. Do any of you take any other meds that control joint pain and inflammation? I'd like to mention them to my rheumatologist, and see what he thinks. Every morning I awake with sore and inflammed elbows and wrists. It takes until about noon until they're loosened up enough to feel okay.

I'd sure appreciate any suggestions from any of you. THANKS!
