I am feeling a little bit better now, but I had my first TRUE flare up from my RA, it was like a blizzard came in for most of the day, then melted off by afternoon, what the heck?. I was first diagnosed last February, mainly in my left index finger. In the last two days it has attacked my left leg, both shoulders and my jaw, this is terrible, I lost sleep last night badly and could hardly open my mouth to eat today. I just visited my Rheumy yesterday and they have now started me on methotrexate, no side effect yet, but my pain today was 6-7. I called them back and they are going to give me a series of prednisone. Someone give me some positives. Any websites for good recipes for RA people? I am more confused now than I ever was.
