    25yrRA was feeling bad

    Bones hurt and back is giving me trouble. I have developed what the doctor calls little bruises all over my legs. They don't hurt or itch, just look weird. Also trying a new anti-depressant, Seroquel. Has anyone else had any experiences with seroquel?

    Teeth are still bothering me. (Had my bottom ones pulled a couple of months ago). Still can't figure how to drink with my dentures in!

      Today being my birthday, I actually feel pretty good, physically. Off to dinner at Red Lobster to TOTALLY screw up my diet!

        Went to the dr today. Mentioned my lump, he sent me immediately for a chest x ray. Says he thinks I may have pulmonary fibrosis, but he wants the 2nd opinion from the radiologist before he starts treatment. I don't know what to think

        Went to SF for the weekend. On the way home we stopped and got a burger and fries and a chocolate malt. Got home and started throwing up! Now there's an end to a wonderful weekend!

        The lump in my neck/chest seems to have subsided, but my neck is killing me!

          Came back from my trip feeling well except for a small lump on the right side of my neck that bothers me when I swallow. I'm scheduled with my dr so hopefully he can tell me what the mystery lump is.

          Been nauseated almost all day. Ate a McChicken sandwich yesterday and I think that did my stomach in. My doctor has given his okay. I finally threw up this evening and feel much better. We are supposed to leave on the train at 1:55am! Talk to y'all when I get back!

              25yrRA was feeling good

              Went to my rheumatologist today and found that I lost 12 lbs in just over a month! I am down to 3 mg of prednisone per day from a starting dose of 10 per day so the doctor indicates that is what is kick starting my weight loss. My blood test also indicate my kidneys are back to normal. I have no idea what I'm doing that is working so well, but it is nice to have the weight coming off. I have gained over 100 lbs since I started on prednisone over 24 years ago.

                Neck is doing better. Tired of taking my limit of painkillers to relax the muscles. I think my fibromyalgia and my RA have joined together to flare all at once. Getting excited about the trip as we leave EARLY (approx 2am) Fri morning.

                  Thanks! I hope so too. How are you feeling lately?

                  Durham is right about in the middle of the northern part of CA. We're 7 miles south of Chico. Is Sunnyvale in the south or north part of the Bay Area? My Aunt and Uncle lived in Richmond and worked in Pinole for years, so that's about all I know other than SF. We're going to a convention for my husband's union in SF right after we come back from our cruise. I think Sept will wear me out! Do your knees swell or do you have bad cartilage? I ruined the cartilage in my left knee when I played soccer in junior high.
