I am 45 y.o. Took 7 months to be dx with seronegative RA. When I look back it really started mildly 5 years ago. But it went from sporadic to full in flare due to horrible stress. Prednisone gave me the first relief I had and I felt human again. Tried plaquinel , no change. Off the prednisone and I would say 50% of the pain is back. Where some areas get worse then others. I tried non steroid anti inflamm and no impact. I am taking Enbrel for a month now and no change but def a flare while on.
When should I be feeling better? If I don't see a change after a month n a flare is that a bad sign?
Would it be better to get back on prednisone ?
The doc said you're can have a flare even when the meds are working .. why?
Lastly, does treatment ever work and how much better should you feel if it does work?
I want to be realistic.
