Just wondering if anyone suffers from thoracic back pain. I get it if I try to do chores around the house that takes longer than 15-20 minutes. It's so bad that I have to lie down and rest till it stops hurting. I am so sick and tired of feeling so bad every day of my life... I wonder if I might have PMR in addition to RA. When I complain of the mucle weakness my Rheumatologist will just take blood work to check the muscle enzymes and they are okay. I am taking 5 mg of Prednisone daily. I have been on several drugs including biologics. I am still trying to decide if I want to try Orencia or not. It's a hard decision for me to make.
My illness is a real long story so right now I would like to know about the back pain. I have hurt all over my body and I don't know what to do. I will start with the T-spine to see what you all think. I also have AS which I know causes some of my back pain. I am in the US and am grateful that I found this site. Thanks so much.
