Does Anyone Have Any Eye Condition Due To RA Or Before RA Was Detected

I am taking prednisone and methotrexate for PUK . I am not sure my blood markers do not indicate autoimmune condition. People talk about PUK after RA is detected but my condition is reverse . I have suffered it for about 5 years now . It started with ocular Rosacea.
Now for the past 6 months on prednisone and methotrexate. I need help to see or hear from people of similar conditions and what they did to resolve

I like Cetaphil. My radiologist recommended it as I was going through radiation in 2009. It is a soothing cream.

Azulfidine

Azulfidine

I take 3-500 mg Sulfasalazine every evening with/after dinner and Orencia infusion every 4 weeks. Could Sulfasalazine cause after-breakfast Nausea? It happens most every mid-morning.

Xeljanz Experiences

Xeljanz Experiences

Hi. I was diagnosed about 15 years ago and have done OK on Orencia, but am now starting to notice more frequent flares. My dr. suggested Xeljanz. I have some concerns about the gastro side effects. What have your experiences been on this drug? Thank you!

Thank you. I’ve also tried a few biologics. Orencia has been the most helpful so far.

Knee Replacement Revisions

Knee Replacement Revisions

Hello RA Warriors,

I’m new here 🫶🏾 I hope you’re all well, feeling better than yesterday, and taking it easy. I have a question about knee replacements revisions. Has anyone had to get it done, and how do you feel? My legs are stuck in a sitting position after a bi-lateral knee replacement that was done last year. Doctors don’t understand why it’s this way, and they aren’t sure if they want to move forward with surgery. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated :)
