I have not posted on here before. I have sero negative inflammatory arthritis now ? PSA.
Having a flare in lower back since November. Depot medrone settled it but came back with vengeance Christmas week. Had a MRI on SI joints 2 weeks ago now waiting for my nest appointment. He didn't want md to have more steroids until after scan.
I cannot sit comfortable in a chair. Having to roll out of bed and walk with furnitur in a morning. I am so tired all the time and ststing to feel ill in myself. I have to take my dogs for a little walk in a morning and that does ease the stiffness . Feel like I have done a marathon. Driving is very uncomfortable.
I have been off work for 3 weeks now.
My medication is Mtx 17.5 inj Sulpha 3 g Hydrox 250 Naproxen 1 g and tramadol Sr.
I do try to push myself under normal circumstances and I have 2 jobs.
My problem my other half wants me to go out walking todah then to dinner. He got ruffled when friends rang to say they would call round to visit me. He says why ? you are not an invalid or sick just a little bad back. We have nor been going out since you have been unwell and weather is nice.
He doesn't understand or I think he doesn't want to. Last week he thought I would be going to work my part time job. I am having trouble just sitting for an hour.
He is not uncaring really just gets frustrated with me and sort of ignores my problems.
I am getting meals ready ect .
Sorry to go on, but should I try harder. Am I just being a whimp or feeling sorry for myself.
Do not want sympathy just honest answers. And does PSA make you feel like this.
I do not get depression but feel a bit down when I get a flare with the frustration. At the moment I feel like crying and alone.
Thanks for listening.
