ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Went to bed one night 3 months ago and woke up with paralyzing pain in every joint in my body. Went to a rheumatologist and was diagnosed with RA. I can get 99% relief if on prednisone but have gained 50+ pounds in the last three months which is causing overweight issues. Ended up two days ago in the ER with what I thought was a heart attack. BP was 264/165. I am just not buying the fact that RA can come on overnight to such an extreme degree and get such relief from steroids. The problem is I do not have insurance and can not afford to spend the money searching for a Dr. that can diagnose my problem.
