Anybody with Palindromic Rheumatism out there?

Hi there. I've recently been diagnoses with Palindromic Rheumatism. I was wondering if anybody else has it or anything similar?

It would be nice to know there are others out there and if anybody has any info or tips I would very much appreciate it.

One thing I would be interested in knowing is if anybody has found any painkillers or other remedies for the pain. It's usually not too bad for me so I don't want to try any long term medications at the moment, but I will get the odd time when I really want some relief. I've tried paracetamol, ibuprofen and an ibuprofen based gel so far and none of them seem to help.

Thanks for any responses even if it's just to let me know I'm not alone. Hope you all have a wonderful day/ night. :)

Apparently antimalarial drugs are used to ease symptoms and to prevent palindromic rheumatism from progressing to rheumatoid arthritis. Otherwise treatments are the usual array of anti-inflammatory drugs used for regular arthritic conditions. Wish you the best in your voyage to find a helpful treatment.
