I've been suffering from some very unusual symptoms - well, maybe not unusual to some - and it's becoming very irritating. Basically, I have intermittent dull and sharp chest pains, eye pains accompanied by fatigue and extremely cold feet (which now resemble sand paper) plus my appetite has gone awol and extra hair loss. I only eat, so I can take my meds (Hydroch... can't spell it).
I have been sensible and all of my observations, up until a couple of weeks ago, were absolutely fine but I can only now walk a very short distance before becoming breathless, tired and that wonderful pain kicks in. I am producing phlegm but this is only more noticeable in the morning. Accident and emergency suggested, a couple of weeks ago when I didn't have the phlegm, it was the beginning of a flare and recommended that I go on a low dose of steroids. I was hesitant and awaited telephone confirmation from my Rheumatologists who stated the complete opposite: they were against the course of steroids due to the pandemic. They preferred for me to increase my high dose steroid inhaler (Fostair 200/6) and paracetomol (pls excuse the spelling) and as a second line, co-codymol to ease the pain.
Not sure what to do. It's annoying because I'm so exhausted.
Has anyone else experienced this or should I take my body to the local supermarket and demand a refund? Ohhh, its so annoying and not ideal during this crisis.
