For about one week my joints have become tender and painful as they were when I first got RA and the drugs were working and reducing the swelling but the there was still pain and burning.   It is even in my finger joints.   Plus, the pain in my muscles, upper back and neck and lower back are primary.   It is the intense stiffness and burning in the muscles.  I took savella for a few months and quit it about two months ago.   The drug really worked well but I felt as it it was affecting my mood drastically.    I was extremely irritable and angry so I stopped it.    My muscle pain has pretty much remained calm until now.     I will be seeing my dr next week but I am going to call him about taking steroids until I see him.    I stopped plaquenil the first of June because of the ins and needles it causes when I am out in the sun.        He will probable make me restart that or up my mtx which I take 7.5mg a week now along with humira.

Yesterday I started having burning from my upper spine all the way down and the area with shingles was starting to burn.   I went through the day with back and neck stiffness but the pain decreased through the day with NSAIDs and a lortab.  I woke up this morning with a big I provement in my back.   My back does this intermittently.   I have Raynauds's and my hands have been colder and bluer than usual and at times I have some numbness and tingling to a couple of fingers.  My left wrist is becoming more inflamed.   My rheumy said I could start my humira in a week and also start back on my mtx because of the shingles.   I listed dr visit on my tracker because I was in contact with him for advice onmy treatment and meds.

Rash on left lower back and patchy down right hip.  Looks similar to hives.    Suspecting psoriasis.   We will see.  Worsening pain due to quitting mtx because of persistent mouth sores.
