I joined this forum in 2014 when I was diagnosed with PMR in August and GCA in December. I did have a positive TAB in December 2014. You all know the story. Started Prednisone 60 mg. While tapering in 2015 had a couple of PMR flairs. Was started on methotrexate by mouth, then injections. This was not successful (and felt very bad during this time). Rheumatologist put me on the oral chemo drug, Cytoxan. Felt even worse on that one and eventually had a reaction to it (severe itching). In the summer of 2016 things settled down and I had some quality of life back. During the past couple of months have new diagnoses -- RA. Have not started this med yet (Arava). Just have to think about it a few weeks. I live in the USA and I am a retireRN. This forum is the best. I really appreciate all of the good info.
