As for the RA: Last time I saw my Doc I complained of foot pain, I always have it and only in the left foot toe box, just in varying degrees. She wanted to up my MTX and start me on cellebrex. I said ok and left the office. After thinking more about this I decided to try some other techniques before I add more junk to my body. Exercise, diet, and meditation was the plan. Well, I got side tracked, between school and a difficult break up things did not go as planned, such is life.
I forgot to ask my Doc, and maybe some of you can chime in here for me. If I am on this foot and I feel pain is that just pain or am I causing more damage? I have to remember to ask her this, you know those Docs, they rush you in and out of there so fast your head spins.
Now, I can say I have a clear head and a clear conscience. Since I let so much time slip by me without making major changes, I am going to up the MTX but not going to take the cellebrex. I am totally off steroids and seem to be doing just fine without them. The Enbrel has made a big difference.
So, Wish me luck guys! Here is to new starts, they are a wonderful thing:):):) and to moms! I wouldn't be able to make it without mine, she is my light when I find myself in dark places.
