    This looks like a great place, so I'm glad to be here.

    I have lupus and polymyositis. So much to tell, but I went to the doc today and I feel very discouraged. Labwork is worse, and God knows I look and feel worse. I've been on methotrexate for 2 months, and solu-medrol IV for 2 days once a month. Well, the methotrexate didn't work. So, a month on prednisone, and she wants to try remicade. I hurt all the time, I feel so tired and no energy to do anything. The inflammation and fluid retention are really nasty. I guess I feel pretty discouraged that the methotrexate didn't work.

    I'd love to read some posts, but not ready to reply yet. I hope that is ok?
