Margaret's PR Story and
"Just finished viewing your site. Thanks
for getting the information out for PR sufferers. Thought I would share some
photos of my recent PR flare. I was diagnosed with PR in 1995. At that time I
was having excruciating pain in both my wrists.
Pressure (working with hand tools, opening a bottle, etc.) of any kind seems to
bring on an attack. The pads of my fingers swell and become very painful. PR
affects the pads and tops of my feet too. Sometimes the swelling on top of the
feet feels as if water is moving around. In most instances the swelling
disappears in 2 days. Today is the first time I was ever able to see a doctor
while the flare was in progress. The doctor prescribed Plaquenil (long term) and
Advil (short term for inflammation).
You have my permission to use these pictures on your site".
