... but since it's similar to RA, am joining this group. Does anyone else out there have it? It is like RA in that it is inflammatory and can have same degenerative and crippling affect of joints, but doesn't attack the organs. I just saw a rheumatologist on Monday and he prescribed Placquenil which he said is given to people with beginning stages of RA. I can't take NSAIDS because of chronic kidney disease, does Placquenil help with the swelling and pain? My fingers are the worst (also have double carpal tunnel) and can't wear my rings.
