Comment:
I suppose I was hoping for a wonderful relief from the pain I have been experiencing. WRONG!! All it has done is wasted 3 1/2 years of my life. I have been in the hospital numerous times and I now have tumors on my adrenal gland and in my liver thanks to the prednisone and methotrexate. I have had NUMEROUS kidney stones (more painful than child birth) and now I am having even more pain in my jo ... Show Full Comment
