  1. Help, I am in so much pain, I really need something.


    This was after having allergic reactions to DMARDS, and a heart medication and I requested a hiatus on meds except for my plaquinel. This was the start of working towards Biologic meds. This probably isn't what you are referring to but, was a big thing for me.

    1. No, this definitely is in the lines of what I meant. Sometimes, like in your experience, it's just asking the question or sharing a statement that - "hey, I need some help! What can you do to help me?" I know for many that sometimes even just asking can be hard. I am so glad you DID - as it sounds like it led to a change and some improvement. Thanks for sharing Cas!💜 - Reggie (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team Member)

    1. Love this Rick. I can't tell if you were kidding when you asked, but the fact he gave it to you is great. (And shows that he cares to give it to you as well). I know that option might not be available for everyone BUT - I wonder if asking is something others can try to. You only get what you ask for ... -Reggie (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team Member)
