Vitamin D And Acupressure Of Rheumatoid Arthritis
The right question: Nutrition plays a huge role in RA & other autoimmune diseases. Add a good multivitamin and also take a look at your diet. The book "digestive wellness" is a good resource for looking at how certain foods can at least make RA worse, perhaps play even a more direct role. Dairy & gluten are the 'usual suspects' but for some it may be soy, etc. Vegetables, fruits are key in an antiinflammatory diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm using plaquenil 200mg and prednisone 10mg for rheumatoid arthritis, can I take vitamin C while using these medications.
Yes: Vitamin c is fine to take while taking these medications. Not sure why you would take it, though.

Is taking supplements such as omga-3, fish oil, glucosamine and vitamin C sufficient enough to ease the pain of rheumatoid arthritis?

Anti-oxidants such as green tea extraqct, grapeseed extract may also help, but if you truly have ra, you will sustainm progressive joint damage with time, if you are not taking remitting agents! see someone in rheumatology! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I am on prednisone an, d plaquenil for rheumatoid arthritis. I woke up with a horrible headache and my eyes hurt to move them around. Is this serious?
HA ; eye issues: I am not certain whether your headache and eye troubles have to do with either rheumatoid arthritis or any medication you listed.
