Soreness in one hand at least everyday. Swelling comes and goes. I have fear of the side effects since I've been hospitalized for stomach pains for 3 weeks. I have a rheumatoid factor from muscle biopsy. It's hard to open doors, jars, water bottles. Difficult to get dress but I push through. I'm not sure if my symptoms are enough reason for me to start a drug. I'm managing but would like to have a better quality of life without the risks from medications.
