I am fairly new to this site, I thought this would be a perfect place to ask who out there is maybe in the same place as I am. I have R.A., and have been on disibility for about a year. I have tried Enbrel, Humera, Remicade, Orencia, methotrexate, & Arava. I am now on Cimzia with Arava. I really can't take NSAIDS, I was on mobic so long it affected my stomach. I am on Voltaren which helps some.
Today I went to an Orthopedic Dr for the pain/ inflamation in my knees. Well, he gave me cortizone shots in my knees....which are not feeling so good right now. I swim 3-4 times a week to try to excercise, but I am feeling kinda frustarted with the whole mess! I am always tired, always in pain ( red wine does help some Any suggestions? Has anyone tried Cymbalta for pain? I don't know if I even want to go with an antidepressant
