So sorry you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and they have not yet found a treatment that helps :(( It really is a crap shoot. I have had the disease since age 6 1/2 and have been on everything under the sun. The longest thing they have kept me on has been methotrexate, the gold standard treatment. But non medicinal things that help are regular physiotherapy, exercising, ice, heat or rest depending on what feels best, splinting for sore upper body parts and the use of TENS. Be proactive about you care and don't be afraid to ask for help. It was physiotherapy that kept me out of a wheelchair. Occupational therapists can give you splints and devices to make life a little bit easier.
Wishing you all the best on your weight loss journey and I hope your Dr's keep on top of your condition and don't let it get out of hand.
