Haven't been here for awhile. Have been on the above 2 drugs for at least 4 yrs.for RA. Last three months have had dosage upped due to a nasty flare up after being off the Meth for about 3 months. Now I'm really losing hair at an alarming rate and am so thin up front that I can see my scalp plus my hair line has really receded. This is getting scary and I am really worried I'm going to go completely bald. Does anyone have any advise or suggestions. I think this has more to do with the prednisone . I'm going to start cutting back on it and see if it makes any difference and just up the use of Advil for pain. Wish me luck and appreciate any suggestions------The Gimp (LOL)-Have tear in right tendon on ankle and tons of RA in foot, ankle and knee-(tear could very well be from Prednisone)---that's why I call myself the Gimp. Now have an Arizona brace which I wear most of the time and probably forever.But at least I can walk !!
