Rheumatoid Arthritis

I have RA and I have been on methotrexate for a month with prednisone and NSAID. I have been feeling great for the first week. I went back to my daily 30 minute walks, that I couldn’t do for over a year. I have RA in my hips. But now I have a differnt kind of pain in my hip that goes down the outter side of my leg to my knee. I get the most pain when I bent forward like picking something off the floor. I was wondering If this could be an inflamed tendon or bursitis. I get inflamed tendons all the time in my other jionts. I think I might have sarted walking to long to soon.

Managing Musculoskeletal Arthritis

I have been told by my doctor, that I have musculoskeletal arthritis in my lower back. Do you have any suggestions for managing this at my age 75. Also the doctor perscribed a medication called “mobic” at 10mg daily. I am a heart patient and I am not sure if this is safe for me to take along with my other medications.
