For just over a month I've been suffering with intense headaches, pain in my right eye, and light sensitivity. I saw my GP this evening and he put me on 10mg amitriptyline, sent me for an eye test and told me to contact my rheumatologist to make him aware (I'm in Uni in Cardiff but still with my consultant in north wales). Just got a call from my GP saying he'd spoken to my rheumatologist who wants to see me asap and has ordered an mri within the next 2 weeks. I have a diagnosis of lupus cross over with dermatomyositis and I'm taking azathioprine, hydroxychloroquine, cyclizine and omeprazole. Just a bit worried because I wasn't expecting any of this!!
