Hi I am a newbie

Hi to all my fellow arthritis suffers.

I was diagnosed with RA in 1998. I also suffer from osteo, fibromyalgia and sjogrenes.

Hello Becky,
Welcome! I am also an arthritis, facet joint hyper., & fibro., patient with hahimoto's thyroid disorder. We all have several threads of commonalities and I find the boards full of knowledge and full of friends.
Nice to meet you!

Re: Hi I am a newbie

Hi Becky,
I also am new. Have been here about a month. I was diagnosed with RA two years ago. Have been on humira for 7 months & just started plaquenil 5 weeks ago. Not seeing any results from the plaquenil yet, things are still the same as they were on humira alone...which is alot better then life before humira but my doc wasn't quite satisfied and said I shouldn't think this is as good as it gets and put me on mtx, that only lasted for one dose, to many side effects and now the plaquenil.
