Ive just been to hospital as my husband had to call ambulance I was in so much pain I was having severe thought of suicide, not surprising when I've suffered like this over 12 years! I've been on codeine sulphate Amitriptyline and gabapentine for a while now,been to see Rhuemy at NNUH once and had negative lupus but positive lupus coagulant? I have no idea what this is? I have appointment to return dec but I'm the meantime I've had a real bad flare in my leg resulting in a hospital day trip! They gave me gas and air, did nothing,they gave me morphine did nothing , they gave me prednisolone ..... Feel like someone made a magic potion!! It worked ... Two days later I'm here not in constant pain! Is this what I should be taking? Why have I been suffering all these years when there is a drug I could have had before to help me? None of this health service makes sense? Am I right in thinking the Rhuemy dept at st Thomas is closed? Can this seriously all be about money? Why do I feel like no one wants to help?
