Can you tell us what type of work you do? That will help in giving pointers. As for medications. Prednisone, even though it is not good to be on for a long period of time has really helped me. it is also pretty cheap. Do you have insurance? Some medications you might want to ask about to relieve pain and stiffness wouldd be: Celebrex, Vioxx, Arthrotec, methotrexate or gold shots, and there is new medicine out that my doctor is going to start me on which is called REMICADE. Remicade will probably not be an option because it is for people who haven't responded well to all the other meds out there. these are just some meds you might want to ask about. Hope this helps. Let us know.
