My Enduring Unknown

I had unbearable pain and swollen joints… I figured it was something 1 pill can cure. I’m 34…Haha no…it’s been a complete up and down battle – allergic reactions and so on …I’m now 39. Meds worked for a bit but now feel like I’m headed back to that and I’m so scared on plaquenil and prednisone…don’t know what’s next.

    So sorry to hear about the pain you’re in, @tdug35fd. I can’t imagine what you’ve gone through with medication transitions and allergic reactions. I can hear your fear and hesitation about your future with your current treatment plan. Have you spoken to your doctor about this yet? If not, I encourage you to do so, so that he or she is aware of any symptoms that may arise. Please keep us posted on how you’re doing if you’d like to share. I’m thinking of you in the meantime. Hang in there. – Alesandra ( Team)
