30+ years with it. Tried steroids first, didn't work. Then


methotrexate, gold shots and then non-steroidal meds the whole time. Near kidney failure because of meds. That was 12 years of jumping from one to another med. Kidneys recovered.
From about 2000-2018 the only thing I took was an occasional Tylenol when pain got too bad. I've been on gabapentin for about 4 years. Doesn't do much for pain that I can tell. For about a year now I've been on Humira. It's helped with the swelling around my joints, but side effects range wildly for different individuals.

Life is fun, take it one day at a time.
