    Hi Kathy,
    Well I aint much on all the meds that doctors seem to put us on. May I offer a suggestion for your joint pain. http://www.cortaflex.com/flfoca.html Not a bad price for a 60 day supply. I took the equine corta flex for years and have no joint problems with my Lupus. This is what my rehume can't undestand why I don't have joint problems.

    I've busted both hand, elbow, and a shot left shoulder. All are working great with no pain.

    Default hi

    Kathy,

    I know i have migranes and headaches allot,but you know,i feel worried about you.Its seems a very long time for you to be left to cope with this.Why dont you call the doctor or make an appoitment n be firm and ask for a scan or proper meds to get this under control? Its only a suggestion,but it should ease and it doesnt seem to be doing.You could even be allergic to something thats keeping it in full flow...dairy maybe or something you eat or drink every day maybe? Or it could be one of your meds you take also.I know i have flashing lights either side like blinkers a horse wears ...not that im a horse but do you and do you also have lights in you front vision? Maybe an eye test could be done also.You need help n fast.Its so sad to read you still have this.Oh my they hurt so bad.I so hope it eases soon for you.You know i went for an eye test yesterday,how thick did i feel.He told me the flashing i have every day are actually migranes.I always thought migranes were flashes with a very bad headache.NOPE it can also be just flashing in the eyes,i never knew.So turns out i have em most days also.But certainly not as bad as yours Kathy.Please let me know what you think.I have flashing in front of my eyes so am back at the eye doc thursday for the drops n eye test.Hope something i wrote helps so we can help you feel much better and soon.
    Thinking of you.
    love Amanda.xxxxxx

    At what point do you stop a med due to side effects?

    So sorry that you're still in pain.
