I was referred to him from my new Dr Kimberly Barnes-Reames from Salem, Il for possible Lupus. On first visit he said that I did not have Lupus but thought possible RA. Some blood work showed him that he was pretty sure it is RA. He started me first with Prednisone.Vitamin D also. for about 8 weeks. My last visit we are going to try Arava. But He talked to me about my dry eyes and mouth. A person just has to ask for an answer with initiative.We have not, because we ask not.
