I will ask my rheumatologist next month when i go but i was just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on this topic. I've had back trouble for many years but i could always pinpoint a specific cause (injury, overuse, etc) but this time it just seemed to come out of nowhere.

I've also had shortness of breath and chest tightening making it hard to breathe in. Thank… read more

Dermatologist identified rash as dermaititis. So what? Prescribed triamcinolone acetonide cream. No help whatsoever. Only cerave has helped with itching temporarily - but the rash, dry skin, and itching of two months duration is not going away. Any ideas/remedies?
