Hi all. I'm new to this site and really wish I'd found it sooner!
I received a kidney from my mum 26 years ago and have enjoyed excellent health ever since. Unfortunately now I am experiencing muscle fatigue, which in my line of work ( I care for adults with severe learning difficulties) really isn't helpful!
I've gone through the whole conversation of " you're 44 and not as young as you used to be" but this has come on quite rapidly along with weak & sometimes painful finger joints/tendons. When I tried discussing my worries at Exeter hospital they became quite cagey, and kept going over how good my results are and how stable I have been. The only advice I was given was to reduce my working hours, which isn't feasible as I'm a single mum with bills to pay! Lol
I'm taking Prednisolone 5mg, Azathioprine 100mg.
Just wondered if anyone else out there has or is experiencing similar symptoms or has any advice on how to deal with it? I feel I need a plan of action for my future so I can deal with this properly without impacting on everyone around me.
