My wife has been afflicted with RA for much of her life and also has OsteoArthritis.
Humira seems to be helping her RA symtoms, but does nothing for her OA symptoms.
The only thing that helps the OA symptoms seems to be Prednisone - which is a problem.
Her Rheumatologist recommended that she wean herself off Prednisone, which she did.
BUT the ensuing OA pain was so severe that she resumed taking a minimum dose of Prednisone just to be able to function.
Thus far, there seems to be nothing else that relieves the OA symptoms but Prednisone.
The Rheumatologist says he can refer her to a Pain Management specialist and has no other recommendation other than opiod derivatives (which she reacts very badly to!)
Our Daughter-in-law has had some very painful medical conditions relieved by the use of CBD and other cannabinoids and highly recommends them
for relief from OA.
Any input from all y'all would be welcome!
