Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am the moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected, as the Professionals come online at varying times. I wonder whether you would like to continue waiting for an answer…hopefully it won’t take too much longer. Please let me know, and I will continue my search. If you’d prefer not to wait, please tell me, and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your reply. I really appreciate the thought you put into it.
I was thinking the same thing about a large teaching hospital. I live in Pittsburgh. Pa. and I am only 20 minutes away from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. That is what I am going to do.
I am in so much pain since I stopped my Methotrexate and Injections/Remicade. I woke up this morning with painful, swollen fingers as I often do(however the xrays showed nothing in my hands). I just dont understand. I am supposed to start back on these med's next week. Also, my fibro pain is so bad, worse than ever. (again, it feels just like my shingles pain and it's in the same area as my shingles). But it is in other areas as well, however the chest and back are the worst.
I forgot to mention that my recent catscan showed several small nodules in my lungs, and apparently they were there when I had my catscan in 2010 (yet no one ever told me about it). The radiologist report said that there was no significant change since the previous catscan. Again, there has to be something going on that is causing all of this.....
Well, thanks again. If you have any other insight, I would appreciate it!
