Hi, I'm the "recently diagnosed (victim) of R.A.
Afer nearly 7 weeks on Prednisone and Plaquenil -- not
much relief and a couple of new Joint Flare ups!! Not
very happy!! Heard that diet is important - - anyone tried anything that has helped? I am TRYING hard to stay with POSITIVE attitude, but very hard to do with
so much pain and so many joints in flare-up-"swollen and painful"! Appreciate any advice re what helps! I'm on a wait list re "consultation " Occupation Therapy (not treatments - just advice)-- but here in Ont. Can --can take forever!!!
Thanks so much,-Dorothy Morris
