Hi I am and was a fairly healthy 72 year old fema...

  • Hi I am and was a fairly healthy 72 year old female until I was diagnosed with RA December 2017. I have been on Prednisone 5 mg since that time. So far have not found a DMard or Biologic that I haven't had adverse reactions to. I also have Fibromyalgia and IBS. The RA is systemic. Some damage to the hands wrists , and toes ankles in feet. Did anyone's else have a difficult time finding a medication that worked without bad side affects? I currently am having issues with maintaining a normal blood pressure also blood glucose running higher. I believe the trigger to the RA may have been a bacterial imbalance in my colon which still may not be corrected. Anyone else have gut issues before getting RA?
