Still no significant improvement on the finger front. I'm on the fourth prescription and I'm honestly beginning to think that surgery will really be my only recourse. Either that or learning to knit left-handed.
Hmmm . . . that might actually be an interesting experiment.
Updated to add: The Celebrex I was on did zip for my finger but it did seem to clear up the problem that was developing with my knee.
Updated update: In case anyone is interested, in order, I've been on Diclofenac, Prednisone, Celebrex, and Etodolac.
