A few weeks ago I had a puffy and pressurized right eye during a wicked flare. Around the same time my doctor prescribed nasacort which got rid of the eye problem. However, after much urging from the people here at KickAS, I went to the ophthalmologist and she found a freaking "cortical spoking cataract"! Sheesh ~ I'm only 50! NO, the cataract doesn't cause pain or pressure or puffiness - it's just a bonus of taking steroids for JRA when I was a kid. Oh, what am I talking about? Right... nasacort. I don't know why it works, but maybe it's worth asking your MD about?

ANA+ RF+ Rh- HLAB27+

Movin' it so I don't lose it!
