It works well for my daughter, but it scrambled my brain. I just couldn't tolerate it or generic gabapentin.

Have Any Of You Had An Indeterminate Result To A DNA DS Antibody Test?

I have been tested for lupus and this test has shown indeterminate twice. So its not negative but in between. All my other lupus tests are normal. Could my rheumatoid arthritis be causing these antibodies?

Pain Cream

Pain Cream

Has anyone tried Arthritis Wonder cream? I'm trying to find new things to try. It's got wogonin in it. I'm not real sure what that is. My knees are so bad. Anyone else have any suggestions for inflammation/pain relief? I've tried a lot of different things. I'm ready to branch out again!

Is It The RA That Prevents Me From Sleeping At Night?

Is It The RA That Prevents Me From Sleeping At Night?

I have difficulty falling asleep every night. On top of it the upper side of my left leg gives me so much pain as if someone continues to punch it. Doc had prescribed Tramadol but no relief. She stopped me from taking Tylenol because my blood count for liver damage was high. I’m in my third year of being diagnosed with RA but my rheumatologist looked back in lab history and said I’ve had it longer and doctors didn’t pick up on it

Plaquenil

Plaquenil

Has anyone had a change in their vision after being on Plaquenil for only a few weeks? The research I have done seems to indicate this only happens after long term use. My rheumy seems to think that the blurriness is probably just from the dry eyes, but suggested I see the opthalmologist. (Saw my former opthalmologist about 2 months prior to starting the Plaquenil, and eyes appeared normal.) However, the blurry vision I experience now seems more so than before taking the drug. Not getting… read more

Does Anyone Else Have A Tightness In Their Lungs?

Does Anyone Else Have A Tightness In Their Lungs?

This may not even be related to RA. I honestly don’t know much about it yet, so I don’t know if all or any of my symptoms outside of pain even relate to it. I feel like my lungs are always tight lately, like I can’t take a satisfying breath.

Does Anyone Else Suffer From Toe Cramps

Does Anyone Else Suffer From Toe Cramps

Does anyone else have trouble with toe cramping up at night when you are trying to sleep, or wake up in the middle of toe spasms at night. I have been doing that for the last couple weeks, even with taking a muscle relaxer before bed.

A myRAteam Member said:

Yes my cramps are getting more frequent and happen at anytime. Even putting on socks causes my toes to cramp.
