Once The Swelling Goes Down After Medication, Does Anyone Else Feel Like The Joints Are Far More Vunerable?

Once The Swelling Goes Down After Medication, Does Anyone Else Feel Like The Joints Are Far More Vunerable?

I have arthritis in many joints: hands, fingers, knees,thighs, feet, ankles, toes, back ,neck and wrists which really swell .But after taking Methotrexate things have improved, but I am getting a lot more shooting pain.I feel more aware of the vulnerability of my joints.

Hi Val, sorry to hear about your pain.I also had pain in my pelvic, so I can imagine .Things did get better when I saw the Rhematologist and started other medication from the hospital, along with prednisolone. Best wishes jxx
