Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia at the age of 15, my daughter has definitely encountered challenging days. Now at the age of 18, she still experiences days when the fibromyalgia poses more problems than the RA. She takes Enbrel and Methotrexate (when she remembers the Methotrexate) for the RA, and her doctor put her on Cymbalta for the fibromyalgia. Deep tissue massages help the fibro a lot. I'm just wondering if anyone else out there has the combination of these two frustrating, debilitating medical conditions. If you do, what works for you? What doesn't work for you? What words of advice would you give to my 18-year-old daughter? Thank you for any and all replies. I've learned I can't remind her to take her medication or supplements; she has to be responsible for herself. It is, however, very difficult seeing her in pain.
