Hi all am still waiting for referral to autoimmune specialist .now 7 weeks on from latest attack. Have symptoms of sjogrens and rheumatoid arthritis plus few others. Went to see my gp this morning and she has decided to go down the route that the useless rheumatologist that I saw has decided. Have been on 30mg prednisolone and 4x500mg paracetamol also4x codeine daily. Now going to up dose of codeine and paracetamol and start me on amitriptyline .going to reduce my steroids by 5mg for 5 days ,then reduce by another 5mg for 5 days and continue this pattern.they say it will be painful,I think it could be dangerous. Any thoughts? Alan
