COUGHING...I think it's a Sjogrens flare up
I would have posted this in the Sjogrens group...but no one has been there since December!
I am coughing a LOT (albeit in spurts). The only other time I coughed this much was last year when I was in an RA and Sjogrens flare because I had to stop my meds for C-Dif infection.
The reason I am almost certain the coughing is related to Sjogrens is because when I take my Evoxac which is a medication that helps produce saliva, it stops the coughing and when I am due for another dose, it starts up again... which is exactly what it did when I was in my bad flare-up with both.
Now my meds RA is under control (with Orencia and MTX), but Sjogrens is not which is weird. Usually either they are both ok or both not ok cause the RA meds help the Sjogrens. I'm befuddled.
I've added Mucinex cause that's what the Sjogrens doc prescribed when I was in my bad flare and coughing.
Always something, huh?
We are going to try Humara next. Still on the MTX. Not going to reduce the Prednozone yet. Adding another drug to try to gain control. Although I think we need to do something, little afraid of Bios.What do you all think?
Long enough tying to deal with this new web sight (a year?) without really commenting much. I DO NOT LIKE IT. It's confusing, directs me where I didn't intend to go, can't find old posts some of which had very good suggestions from folks, etc, etc. Participation is not to the level on the new one compared to the old one. GrrrrrrThank you for allowing me to vent.
First, I will apologize for not having someone (like one of my daughters) post for me that I was away from my phone. I was admitted to the ER about a week ago with bowel blockage. It was really quite...rough. But, many things were learned from this. 1. Don't give up just because it seems others have. God hasn't! 2. God is in control, even if he must put us on our back So the only way th look...
