I am sure we all feel at times that "no one" could have hurt as bad as I do, but I have to say...I am in week 3 of a full body flare. There isnt a joint that doesn't have some degree of swelling. Some of my digits are even purple/red. I cannot walk, can barely work, and have my ex-husband pulling extra time w/the kiddo because I can barely take care of myself. We cannot use prednisone because it caused severe stomach pain, and there won't be any other treatment prescribed until an endoscopy is performed Thurs for ulcers. I am on Percodan, but its short lived and I am taking about 1.5x the dose just to survive, I cannot fathom "just living with it" even for another few days. Has anyone experienced similar?
