A Newbie

Thank you so much for the add. I’ve struggled with osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia for many years and fell into the opioid addiction. I did rehab and now I'm 16 months clean.

Managing RA pain without opioid use

A month ago I was dx with RA. I'm severely allergic to NSAIDs and gabapentin so my pain relief is very challenging. I started my second month of methotrexate and feel pretty sick the 2nd and 3rd day after... I’m 56 years young moved from up north to down south a year ago. Still adjusting to the weather but for me south is better.
