Hi,I am a senior.Some 10 yrs ago was diagnosed with osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and degenerative disk diseases. Past 5 months went into "severe flare up" and
now diagnosed as having Rheumatoid Arthritis (probably had it all along!:) I was first given Prednisone (now down to 1 per day) then Plaquenil (2 per day). Have learned of so many side affects!! Interested in hearing from anyone using these medicaitons, long term.
Since predniosone reduced, major pain in wrist has returned (and chest pain!)Last trip to ER- after tests,
stated that prob. now R.A. in rib cage! Anyone similar?
Thanks so much! Dorothy
