Three Months... Oh My!!

From February to May I was taking Leflunomide 10mg once a day.

Painful medicatication side-effects

My belly ached so doggone bad I messaged my doctor informing him I was quitting the medicine. I'd had enough.

It felt like a bottom of the belly nausea. Non-stop.

Not only that, my butt and legs went numb. It was very difficult there until May.

From pain, to relief

Then, like Dorothy, I stepped into a brighter technicolor world.

I have to say that, when I was sick I was thankful that I wasn't hurting as bad. That all-over pulsating ache that had been my constant companion for three years had left.

I thank God, I thank my doctor, and I thank my husband. Relief is a God-send.
