its been a long time since my last post,18 mths on from diagnosis,still on 15mg mtx,meloxican,400mg tramadol,800mg paracetamol,oh allopurinol because i suffer from gout,i had a nervous breakdown about 3mths ago on crutches if walking involves a supermarket size walk,anti depressants,oral steroids nothing is stopping the constant pain even the tramadol is seeming less and less effective,atos are coming monday,stomach bug today lots of pain somedays i am so fatigued i have no energy,rheumy appointment week on tuesday,brave face time which i know doesn't do me any good but i was bought up (tears now so very low) "not be any trouble" i have little or no self confidence anymore.feel stupid with wrist supports and crutches,been on the sick for 3 months and terrified as i have admitted to myself i can no longer work at my current job(standing 10 hours a day)though i havent discussed this with my wife as i dont want to let us down.......i 100% mean this if the dr offered to have my legs off at the knee i would without hesitation take him up on it!!
