Has Anyone Ever Had Severe Tailbone Pain W/ Their RA?

Has Anyone Ever Had Severe Tailbone Pain W/ Their RA?

My 19 yr old daughter has RA & has had terrible pain in her tailbone for a few days now. She was recently diagnosed and has started plaquenil. Advil and Aleve have done nothing. She finally took a steroid today b/c her pain is so bad. But she hates taking them b/c they make her gain weight.

A myRAteam Member said:

Prednisone really helps but weight gain is terrible for the pregresssion of RA.
I hate to take it but I will when I can't stand the pain anymore.

Steroids

Steroids

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to take for inflammation/flare other than steroids? Any good results with meds that help? I can't take steroids for more than a few days and a low dose. It's so frustrating because that's all my doctor seems to prescribe when I'm in a flare. I know it works quick, but the side effects are too much and it doesn't last. Suggestions anyone??

Cumin and pepper pills twice a day
