I have been doing well on a Humira & mtx (10 mg (reduced)due to high ALT in liver.
End of Nov big flare due to bereavement , hand swollen, knees & ankles v painful . Saw Rheum aft blood tests showed raised ESR & CRP, she put me on Lyrica at night for pain & 3 wk course of steroids & said if doesn't settle will reintroduce plaquinil. Pain continues unabated & terrible fatigue & ankle pain so bad can't walk too far, both fused & other ankle painful, saw GP, increased Lyrica & introduced Tramadol for pain... Has anyone else experienced a flare like this? Did it settle? How long? I'm in hell. Any advise welcome.
