Does anyone have trouble lifting their arms after lifting or activity?

Does anyone have trouble lifting their arms after lifting or activity?

When I exercise, lift anything with weight, or am too upper body active I have trouble. The next day or even that evening, I cannot lift my arms over my head without yelping in pain. It's as if I have damaged my upper arm. I assume it is from my shoulders, but not sure. Anyone else have this issue?

Taste Buds changing

HI all!

2 months ago my Dr. put me on Arava and Azulfidine and about a week and a half ago all food and drinks started to taste funny to even gross. Has anyone had this happen? I know the Azulfidine is a sulfa drug... not sure if it is one or the combination of the two that is causing this. I just know I do not like not being able to enjoy any food.
