Having just started autoimmune meds, what else can I be doing to alleviate the symptoms?
I have read and read and read, but do not feel like I am getting any info in managing my life, kinda
feeling helpless & out of control which is so NOT me.
Anything I should be eating (went from 160# to 145#, size 10 to a 4 recently), drinking, exercising, etc.?
When questioning Rheumo - he said exercise is out of the question right now, with exception of walking the dog sort distances, this will only aggravate the inflammation in my legs muscles, the Imuran may take a mth or so to start working..uped my protein intake (advice from daughter, licensed fitness instr.)
I don't drink, love my sweet tea & find that I have sugar cravings without the weight gain, we eat well and healthy, I've recently quit smoking after a very long time, but feel the need on an hourly basis to say the least...I feel a relapse coming on.
So what's is left?
Middle of the week blues.
