I have some unknown from of rheumatoid like arthritis that is eating up multiple joints with severe erosion of bones at joints and cysts. I have had a hip replacement, a elbow replacement, and now am losing my L wrist & ankles. Has anyone here had a wrist fusion and how did that work for increasing stability and ability to use the wrist/arm, while decreasing pain? Also has anyone else with this kind of thing? What medicines worked best for you? I have already tried Sulfasalazine, Hydrochloroquine and CBD oil without much improvement and often bad side effects. Methoytrexate is next, but it is so liver toxic. Oh did I mention, all my blood tests are negative except for a positive ANA screen and titer. They don't even know if I have rheumatoid arthritis, but something is going on that is more than my known osteoarthritis. Just looking for information from any of you out there who may have had similar experiences. Thanks!
