In brief: Trouble

These are very difficult treatments to diagnose and even harder to treat.
Every patient is different, so they all require different treatments to find which works best. A baseball player does not hit a homerun every time he steps up to the plate. Keep trying to find the best meds that work. Sometimes seeing a 2nd specialist can help to give more thought to your illnesses.

Ask your rheumatologist if you are a candidate for a thymectomy?

In brief: Surgery option

In appropriate candidates, minimally invasive thoracic surgery to remove thymus (thymectomy) can possibly cure or stabilize disease or decrease amount and/or types of meds.
