Does anyone have any useful tips when they have had massive fluid build up. i have fluid around my knee and a big bakers cyst popping out the back of my knee i have had this fluid on and off before years ago but have had it all the time for last year. i found out i had RA about 4 months ago i have tried ice, rest, compression sleeve. i have had it drained about 8 times in last two months had the steroid injections they do nothing for me. is there anything else that helps or just need to wait for meds to kick in?
currently on 2000mg sulfasazaline daily (been on for 15 weeks or so dones nothing)
10mg methetrexate once a week (only in second week going up to 15mg this week then up to 20mg in two weeks. i take 10mg folic acid 24 hours before)
just finished 28 days of prediselone (20mg tapering down each week by 5mg) did nothing at all.
any ideas would be good as it seems to be getting worse the lump out the back is so big now you can see it sticking out my trousers.
Also people taking methotrexate how long till you noticed it helped.
