Sorry for my quietness. Have been really down in the dumps and just had no motivation or mojo.

My update is have been taken off methotrexate. Thank goodness!!

Now on day 4 of hydroxychloroquine, then once we know I'm ok with that, Sulphasalazine is being introduced slowly.

Is anyone else on this combination?

Week 4 and my steroid injection is wearing out already. I can only have 2 more, so I am hoping these are the magic meds this time.

On a good note I got my car!!! It's great and I can't wait until I can drive it a bit more!

Going to catch up on everyone's news this afternoon

Thinking of you all and sending hugs

Hi, I am on Sulfa and Hydroxy after failing miserably on MTX which I hated!

It's worked very well for me and have had hardly any side effects. I wish you well

I got the Focus in the end.

It has made such a damn difference to me.

I really wish the MTX injections had worked for me.

I know that is the best treatment if your body can take it
