... blog for patients like me to share tips for managing everyday life with these conditions as well as info on advocacy and research. If interested, go to therevivalistblog.blogspot.com and let me know what you think. Thanks!
Ok so it's not just me. Currently on Arava and Humira for RA, Nucynta ER and Cymbalta for pain. They gave me Modafinil for fatigue but I only take it when I really need it (on too many drugs as it is... ) Throw in rheumatoid nodules in the lungs, COPD, and GERD/IBS and life really sucks at times, but what are you gonna do??? Just have to keep pushing through the problems. Biggest thing anyone with chronic issues can do (IMO) is get and keep all your docs informed and hopefully communicating!
My doctor keeps telling me I'm no type positive for RA yet, but it may change. I do have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and more. The more avenues to help answer questions about multiple chronic illnesses is so helpful while trying to know if things our doctors say are truly in our best interests as well as helping uncover unreported rare side effects so someone else knows they're not alone.
