I have been in a bad flare for about 9 weeks now. No sign of it easing. The pain is everywhere too - my entire back, legs from hip to toe. Missed an entire 7 week placement (only 6 months of nursing degree left). Don't know what else GP can do - tried loads of different meds and waiting to start a pain management programme.
I'm just desperate to finish uni and get a job but the pain, fatigue and lack of sleep make it seem impossible to do the things I want/need to do
Feel like I'm loosing myself - I'm so bad tempered all the time cos of pain - don't know how my poor husband puts up with me
Sorry to moan, I'm just so fed up and the thought of dealing with this condition for the next 50+ years is terrifying!
