I'm happy to connect with others who understand RA. I've had it for 12 years. I'm 63 years YOUNG! Was on Methotrexate for almost a year. My body wouldn't absorb the drug in pill form so I had to give myself a shot once weekly - but prior to taking the shot, I had to take Phenergan so I wouldn't throw up for hours & hours. The doc recently discontinued the Methotrexate because my hair was falling out by the hand-fulls. Now I'm on Remicade but haven't really "felt" any good results yet. We'll see. I DO NOT TAKE PREDNISONE!
My weight gain started when the doc put me on high-dose Prednisone 12 years ago. The other steroid side effects were awful!
Today, I'm trying to have less pain, move more, lose weight, eat and exercise properly and work toward a more healthy state in general.
Wishing you all very good results in your journies!
