Hi Helen....all my tests came back normal after 9 months on mtx so I made my doctor release me. I don't take anything now and am slowly getting some energy back. ...just not like before. I do have a little cramping in my toes, and my wrists are tender at times. When I go to my daughter's house with lots of stairs, my left knee twinges me but other than than and the fatigue, I'm doing well. I just hope it continues as RA is such a weird disease and affects everyone differently. My doctor commented once that I might be lucky I didn't get it until I was 60.
Now if I could just lose weight that would take a lot of stress off the joints.
Hi, Cheryl, I stopped by your page when I read that you too have RA. It's a nice page, with a great picture of you and your painting.
I too am supposed to be in remission but have a lot of problems with fatigue and low energy. Also I still have trouble with my knees, wrists, and hands, even though I'm 100% better than I've been in the past. I am on methatrexate and Enbrel. What about you? I've found Enbrel to be a wonder drug, although the injections are inconvenient. Hope you've found something equally effective for yourself.
