Has anyone taken plaquenil and Pred to help reduce RA damage . I am new to all of this 2 mos now. As the tests are coming in it appears as though I have all 3 problems going on. OA.. RA some but not obvious yet. And PMR for sure. Rheum wants to see feet and toe X-rays as he says that often shows damage where other body parts show ok.I did pop positive in Ccp for RA. I’m on 10 I’d Pred with cont pain in am but does get better throughout the day. I was a very fast paced person pre illness with a busy job working lots of long hours. Not now. Off of work and each day trying to figure this out. He says Plaquenil may help me from further RA damage but I sure hate to take another Med unless I really need it. My fingers are quite swollen and knees hurt so he thinks it is RA with Pos Ccp. Thank you all!
