I was diagnosed with rhematoid Arthritis 1999 and have been on several medications,
methatrexate, predisone, anti inflamatories, remicade, humira and now on embrel since May 2005. I also developed a fast heart rate and was given toporol XL by a cardiologist. I also was taking liptor and an anti-inflamatory. When put on toporol XL and taken off the anti-inflamatory I devloped Psoriasis on my hands and feet. Before this happened I felt ok and had no idea I had a fast heart rate, but was told by the same doctor he thought I had a heart murmur. This was never told to me by any doctor. I haven't felt good since. I went to a dermatoligist who prescribed taromax a steriod medication to apply at nightime to my hands & feet. This hasn't helped. I also ordered a zinc spray wash and creme and Zinc vitamin over the web but that hasn't helped either.
I'm fed up with all this. Anyone out there with help for me on alternatives.
