Off work

Hello just a quick update, since my last post I have been off work, iv'e been to the doctors and she has told me I have chondritis, she has given me anti inflamatries but they are making my stomach really bad, im still in a lot of pain and finding it hard to get up and ready, I told the doctor that my letter says I have dsdna and she said you have a auto immune diesease but wouldn't confirm Lupus. Im going back today to see if she can change the meds and get me into see a rheumy quicker than Feb, I have a little girl so I need to get back on my feet asap, my partner is a really big support alrhough we don't live together so we are currently staying with him, im very independent though and im itching to go home and back to work.

Good luck with your appointment today. Please let us now how you get on. Fingers crossed that you can get an earlier appointment than Feb with a rheumatologist.

Hi after seeing the doctor yesterday she has taken me off the inflamatries and told me to just take cocodamal, I have managed to get appointment cancellation with a rheumy this Thursday
