I was diagnosed when I was 19. Now am 25. I have been on almost all medications trying to find something to work. I don't usually have problems with my knees but had to have them drained twice within the last 2 years and My right elbow and wrist are affected as well as my left foot. Suffering with this has caused me sever dpression. I usually feel so helpless and frustrated most of my days not being able to move like I want to.

Want to know how others are coping and what meds have and have not worked for you...

Mary I have had RA since I was 30 and I am 56. I am now on Humira and it is working well for me. Was on Enbrel and had to change because I was in an accident and for some reason it quit working. There are tons of new meds out there don't give up!!!

I have arthritis in my neck, both of my hips and osteoarthritis in my lumbar spine. I take Celebrex.

My sister has Rheumatoid Arthritis. She also takes celebrex and once took place in a drug trial ? She does not want to take infusion drugs. She is not on Enbrel or Humira that I know of.

I know that if I just sit around and don't do anything I feel terrible, but if I get up and get my body moving around I feel better.

I don't know much about arthritis right now, but I have had four steroid injections in my right hip and two in my left shoulder. I am only 50 years old, I shouldn't have so much wrong with me ?

Celebrex is work for u, leave as it is. If change occurs, try other one. Diclofenac tablet is prescribed for the treatment of mild-to-moderate pain. Diclofenac 50mg work by reducing certain substances that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
