Im new here, Im 32 and was diagnosed at 23 after having psoriasis since i was 15. I have 2 little boys, the arthritis after my first son was very bad but went into remission on sulfasalazine until after my second son was born.
This is where my arthritis has got worse, two years on im still in agony, my medication was changed to methetrexate which didnt help.
I am now 8 weeks into taking leuflomide and im flaring every week in my knees, i get a fever, shivers and then a knee swells up and i cant walk for days.
Im taking the maximum dose of ibruprofen.
Im feeling very sorry for myself at the moment, im even considering trying to be signed off work as the flares are really affecting my life.
Im just praying the new meds will start to work soon, due to see the rhumy in a months time.
Has anybody else had a period of constant flares that has improved with time?
Thankyou for reading... Lou
