I originally went to Mayo back in 2013. I got a confirmation on my tumid lupus diagnosis. Since then I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia rheumatica. I am interested in finding out if there are any new advances in the treatment of these two conditions. I am currently taking 5 mg/day predisone(down from 20 mg/day,decreased 5 mg/month) for the fibromyalgia rheumatica, with alendronate sodium once/week to fight osteoporosis. I also taking 17.5 mg/week methotrexate to help with the tumid lupus, I think. I would appreciate and help I can get regarding these conditions.
