"Current Status" - December 9, 2010

Written for my profile on

I started Methotrexate almost a week ago; also Folic Acid and Trazadone to help me sleep and treat the possible Fibromyalgia.  My 12 week trial with Azathioprine was not successful.  I had an MRI last weekend to see if any progress was being made.  My Dr. has readmitted the possibility of either Lupus or Fibromyalgia as a partnering disease.  
My hands are much better with the sporadic use of Triamcinolone as needed. I had Gottron’s Papules that got horribly inflamed and were so sore, but they are so much better now, thank goodness!
I'm feeling pretty optimistic, as I know that there are a ton of people taking Methotrexate; which to me translates to - it works for tons of people!  Hopefully it will work for me too.
