Several years ago in 2013 I was"diagnosed" with RA. I went through every medication including, humira, embral, to now IV fusions of remicade which has been almost a year. I am not feeling any better and body aches and joint pains getting worse. I started researching my symptoms and lyme kept coming up. 9 months in and many drs telling me i have nothing its my RA and that I am pretty much crazy, I made an appt. with an infectious disease dr whom also said my symptoms are RA nothing else related to lyme or ticks. Well today I found out after waiting 3 weeks for the results i tested negative for Lyme but positive for "Ehrlichiosis" now i am wondering if all this time of being untreated caused my body to fall apart. I am only 42 yrs old I have a 4 yr old i have no energy to play with or strength to open a jar of apple sauce. Can this positive "Ehrlichiosis" result be the cause of my ailments? And have gone untreated for ever how long cause so many masking problems? I have had so many abnormal blood tests for years. I start antibiotic today for 14 days is that gonna be enough? Is that going too heal me altogether? This is a bittersweet moment for me. Do I even really have Iron deficiency anemia or did this bacteria cause me to have problems?
I am in pain everyday! My life sucks! I just want to know how to get some relief! Most days I don't want to get out of bed! My feet and legs hurt the most on me but lately my hands are starting to hurt! On my right foot I have a lump on the bottom of my foot, I have bunions(big) on both feet, and I have rheumatoid on both but a lot more on the right, then I also have neuropathy on both feet. I also have cellulitis which makes my legs swell and throb with pain! I just have too much wrong with me, if I could find some relief for one or two of my problems I could deal with this a little better!! I would try some of the Garden of Eden but I don't know where to get some of the ingredients on the list? Has anyone tried that?? Any advice would be appreciated, thank you!!!!
I've had RA for 26 years. I was on Methotrexate for 24 of those years. I've tried Xeljanz for a month. Made me weak, nauseous, major headaches etc. Tried Enbrel, results not good. Humira, results were no effect or side effects, can't afford. However it seems Zyrtec seems to help my allergies and takes away some pain. Of course my Rheumatologist doesn't see any value and is unhappy with my results with the biologics and Xeljanz.

Hi, New to all of these forums etc but thought id give it a go. I have recently been taking folic acid approx 3 weeks as me and my partner are trying for a baby. I have been to the doctors this morning regarding my skin as I have been suffering for years - nearly 10! with bad acne to the point where I am giving up and it's getting out of control! I informed her of our plans for a child etc and she has prescribed me erythromycin and states that this is fine during trying to concieve and pregnancy. It wasn't until I got home and remembered I never mentioned about taking the folic acid neither did she mention it, I'm just concerned about taking these both together and if anyone else has had this issue or not and what the long term affects of this could be. I have looked online but not really had much luck in finding an answer, Can anyone help?
Personal experience about folic acid. I used to take pure folic acid (the description depicted that it only contain folic acid of 500 mcg per pill). And I started to nose bleed every day, after using of such pill for a week. recently, I bought adult gummies from 'nature made' brand, which claims to have 400mcg folic acid. I started to have a nose bleed again after using of such product for about a month. For both experiences, my symptom of nose bleeding disappears soon after I stopped the pills.
