Full Question: Have you ever heard that migraines can cause numbness to the left side of the body, starting in the feet and moving up the leg to the arm and face?

Isn't that the way it always is? We set goals and we make some progress, but somewhere along the line we realize that change is a process requiring a lot of time and emotional investment. The key to success is to never give up, to keep moving toward our goals.
A short time after I decided to give myself a Spring Makeover, I ran full tilt into a flare. I was tapering off prednisone at the time, and then it happened. My left wrist, which is always swollen, decided to balloon up to a new level of puffiness. It was quite impressive.
A day or two later my ankles and elbows decided to join the party. RA was having its way with my body, and I was hurting. What do I do when I hurt? I eat! So, I have to report that I have only lost six pounds since I...
