Hi! I'm Amanda. I was diagnosed with Palindromic Rheumatism 5 years ago based off of a positive Rheumatoid Factor, but transient symptoms. I have been taking daily Plaquenil since that time. Recently, it has become much less effective. I have constant swelling and pain in my fingers, wrists, feet, and right knee. DH and I are TTC our first - mostly because we are beginning to become afraid that I might not be physically strong enough a few years down the road. Any suggestions on medications or supplements that would help and be safe while TTC. I have an appointment scheduled with a new rheumatologist (just moved) but it is nearly three months off!
