I am under the care of a great rheumatologist, but the pain has been getting worse for the past three years....I see the doctor every month and bc it has gotten worse i now have to go in every week...he is frustrated cause i don't respond to the medications the way i should...i have been rotating medicines for years now...Now i take prednisone, lodine, trental, norvasc, neurontin, darvocet, and prozac...and it all helps...but i am still not close to being fully functional. I have been taking steroids for more than a year...i know there is a way out of this...but i am still in the process of finding the door. Thanks.
