Hello there, I'm suffering a huge flare at the minute. The anti tnf drugs, enbrel, humira etc did not work for me. I currently take 15mg of prednisone daily, all in all I take 30 tablets daily including morphine and maxi tram.
I have severe pain in my rib cage on the left hand side. It's so painful it hurts to breathe. I can't stand to be touched on my ribs at all. I'm using ibuprofen gel at the minute but it's not that great.
I also have fibromyalgia so my flares bounce from RA to fibromyalgia all of the time. I honestly don't know how much more I can take. I had to have a depo medrone injection on Friday as my inflammatory markers were sky high..
