Hi I'm 17 and I was recently diagnosed with morphea. So far I obviously have a mark on skin and I'm also experiencing fatigue, joint pain and eye strain. I'm just wondering what tips anyone has on working through it and what I have to expect. Thanks !
My daughter was recently diagnosed with Morphea en coup de sabre. She started a treatment regime of prednisone and methotrexate injections about 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately, we have not been able to get her stomach pain/discomfort under control. She is miserable, which breaks my heart, and is missing a lot of school. The pain is also routinely waking her up at night, so she isn't getting enough sleep. So far her doctor has tried Ranitidine, Omeprazole, and an increased dose of folic acid, without success. Does anyone have any other recommendations? Have you or a loved one dealt with something similar and found something that helped? I would appreciate any feedback/suggestions. NOTE: She already takes her medication after eating and with a glass of milk. Thank you
