I was diagnosed with RA a year ago. I've also had Spondylolesthesis, Spinal Stenosis, Sciatica and every other issue you can think of with my lower back and hips for almost 2 decades. For the past week, my Spondy and sciatica seem to be rearing their ugly heads again. Is this just part of my back problem (which hasn't been real bad for about 3 years) or do you think an RA flare can compound these other issues?
Also, I've had neck issues too lately with both arms having a nerve-like pain with tingling and numbness down the arms to the fingers. Does anyone else deal with this? I'm going to visit a friend cross country on Tuesday for a week and these recent pains are making me nervous for a long plane ride. Any recommendations on how to keep from cramping up and getting sore on the flight? Thanks in advance! Oh, and P.S., I'm currently taking 20mg of Leflunomide (the MTX didn't work for me) along with Rx strength folic acid, Indomethicin (a prescription anti inflammatory), Norco, Soma, Fish Oil, Tumeric with Curcumin and Vit D3.
