Remicade helped the most but had to go off due to elevated Liver Enzymes. On Cosentyx now. Helps but not enough. I will not stop it because there really has been no other to help. My fingers are less stiff and swollen.

I've been using essential oils. Epson salts in my bath and herbal teas for years cause I got tired of being jerked around by drs. Hugs

So I started on prednisone and it wasn’t enough. Then added methotrexate, it help but not enough. I am now on enbrel, prednisone and methotrexate. With all three of theses meds I have been back to feeling good. I have found I’m not pain free but minimal pain. I still have to do light exercise to stay lose, use essential oils and pace myself. I have a new normal. I have to eat very clean and no alcohol. I can say with this treatment plan I don’t use any pain meds other than occasional Tylenol. But I’m active with my life and kids. Hope you can find something that works.

I understand where your coming from. I was on nubumatome which caused me to have major stomach issues. I’m limited because NSAIDs don’t agree with my stomach.
All three meds—-prednisone, methotrexate and enbrel have really made a difference to use all three.
Hope they can find the right cocktail that works for you!

I took indocin for years and it helped some, but hurt my stomach. I switched to prednisone and it worked great for a few years, but with the lower doses I still had back and neck pain. I stopped the prednisone and am taking Humira. Humira helps my spine/neck pain and stiffness but doesn’t help my knees or shoulders. My doctor added Mobic to see if that will help my other joints.
