Hi Laura, may I ask if you're being prescribed anything specific for your PA? (DMARDs, metho, immuno-moderators?)

Yes. I have been on Methotrexate since diagnosis so March 16 and earlier this year was placed additionally on Arava. Prior to that I was on Sulfasalazine but hated SE mostly nausea

I have been on Norspan for 2 years now and am still using the 10mg -- although I am sure I can do with more -- which the Dr has offered me larger dose -- but I am never going to be able to be off pain control as my spine is collapsing and getting worse by the day -- I also found that when I 1st went on them -- I vomited so often for at least a month -- I could go nowhere without a sick bag --and I also get blisters on my body through them --

I am trying to keep the dose down as much and for as long as I can -- as I do not want to be on so many that I become more dependent.

So very sorry to hear about your pain levels! Hope it's under control by now. I'm trying to decide whether to undergo Ketamine infusions. I'm hoping that this last round of infusions has helped you. Would you say that they have and if so, by what percentage? What percentage did the last round help you and how long did it last for? Thank you for your help.

Does anyone else get a burning rash from their Norspan patches ?

I did once. I'd put it on after cleaning with alcohol wipe. Now I use just water. Or I go for a hydro pool 'swim' and don't shower. That's clean for ya!
