Hello all! I’m new here, but looking for suggestions. My mom has had lupus for over 30 some years now, but was recently also diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis. She is having horrible hand pain, to the point of not being able to do anything. She said its sharp, like it hurts to pull up the sheet on her bed.
I’m trying to see if anyone has any ideas for medications/home therapies/things that make it easier.
They want her to try methotrexate or Arava, but she has had meningitis before, and theres a risk for it with them.
Her rheumatologist literally told her he is out of any other options, to the point that they may risk the meningitis again to get her some relief.
Just trying to see what has worked for other folks before!
