About a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with RA. My tests were negative but I had symmetrical joint pain and swelling,etc.
I was on prednisone for a year, methotrexate for 6 months and did not have good results from either. Gained a lot of weight. Liver counts weren't good.
Now I'm back to square one. My doctor prescribed me gabapentin(??). I was wondering if anyone else has been in this situation or can offer ideas/tips. Lyme disease and fibromyalgia were thrown at me from different people (not drs.) but I don't have the classic symptoms. I don't even know where to go from here. Please Help!View Thread
No rashes. Certainly have responded to prednisone and currently humira. Still not positive if it is ra. Have tried gabapentin. I haven't had the nerve pain and numbness. I was also diagnosed with carpal tunnel in both wrists.View Thread
It's so hard to deal with the weight gain. What is the average amount of weight gain from being on steroids for RA. I 've been on them for 8 months and have really packed on the pounds. And why do you gain weight?View Thread
