Went back to hospital yesterday

Following advice from you guys, I contacted my hospitals helpline and explained my situation of symptoms coming back in force.

The nurse I spoke to e-mailed the my consultant and then the consultant arranged an appointment for me the following Tuesday(Yesterday).

My appointment went really well and the consultant said that she thought a virus might well have kicked things off and caused a nasty flare. You guys were right, thanks guys.

She arranged blood tests and a steroid injection to boost my body back into remission. Prescribed a steroid nasal spray to spray directly to mouth ulcers and I am then the start taking Azathiporine along side Colchicine in 2 weeks time, once my consultant has written to my G.P. The plan is to review things in 3 months or sooner if the meds regime doesn't work. Fingers crossed with that amount of drugs I will go back into remission and be symptom free.

The odd ulcer or migraine I can cope with but a mouth full of ulcers and headaches so bad it hurts to pick head up off of the pillow just isn't funny.

I am so glad I had you guys there for advice, thank you, thank you, thank you. x x x
