My husband precious was diagnosed with Rheiters syndrome. It had been in remission since 2004 . Just this month he was diagnosed with SLE, sclerosis and Renaulds syndrome. This is all new to us not sure what to expect. He is 59 and. Ot a complainer. He can't hardly dress himself he is so stiff and in so much pain. How long will this last ? He has been on meds including methotrexate for about 1.5 weeks and starts an iv infusion binlystal next week. It breaks my heart to see him in this pain.
