Hello everyone!  Today is a very important day.  Today is the first day since last July that I have had NO joint pain at all!  The day isn't over as it's 4:30 pm, but I think this is a good sign, don't you?

I went to the rheumy on Monday and all my blood work looked good, so he upped my dose of azulfidine.  I am now taking 4 a day.  I've decided that two in the morning and two at night is best for me. WOULD BE a perfect day, however, my stupid stomach is a mess.  I'm nauseous and my tummy is super rumbly.  I'm resting right now in hopes it will get better.  I want to enjoy the day.

I'm having some girl issues.  I'm not going to go into detail with those issues because I'm not so sure they are important (or truly issues) at this time.

I hope everyone is doing well.  Enjoy your day!


  1. Glad to read that your pain levels are falling and that today is a good day in terms of RA pain. Sorry about the grumbly tummy, though. Ginger tea can be helpful, as can ginger ale. I hope you'll be feeling great in all ways soon.

  2. Good to hear that you are experincing less pain. Sorry about the other sides. Side effects are the trade-offs. All you can be is patient.

  3. Yay for no joint pain! Sorry about your belly!

  4. That is awesome news, Beth! If you think your stomach is med-related, try taking it on a full stomach. Some of mine that's the only thing that helps.
