Hi everyone well it's midnight and I'm in so much pain I have done the house work today which was a real struggle and have had my ritixumab treatment about 2 weeks ago which I had 2 100mg doses of prendisalone over 2 weeks when havin the treatment and had to up my prendisalone to 20mg from 10mg for 4 weeks around the treatment and I have piled on the weight and my body is solid with all the fluid retention and I have a moon face its been hurrendous. My problem tonight is every time I do anything the pain in my back is really bad as the fluid is pressing on my spine and I have become increasingly short of breath over the past week. I now have a sharp pain every time I breath in and it's worse if I'm stood or sat up it is constantly there as a less sharp pain but gets 100times worse when I breath in. I am so worried I have never had this much fluid retention I can't do anything without pain and my skin is so thin and if you touch my bum its solid as a rock as the fluid is that bad. I don't want to put on any more weight so have started reducing my steroids back to 10mg the past 2 days. I'm sorry for goin on I just can't take any more I want my boyfriend to stay with me but I have gone from a size 6-8 to a 12 in literally 2 months I'm fed up and desperate the pain I the worse I have had in a long time I dunno if il ever b able to sleep I have been downing the oxynorm liquid like pop desperate for it to go thanks for reading
