I'm on steroids and azothiaprine, so when I developed right sided chest pain at the end of last week, coming from the back round to the front, I was on the look-out for a rash. That appeared last night after four days of quite bad pain.
The surgery were wonderful - I phoned at 8am when they opened and I was seen at 8.30am. Had to wait until 9am for the pharmacy to open, but now have extra amitriptyline 10mg to take at night, more codeine and paracetamol so that I can increase the pain relief and acyclovir.
It's going to be difficult to remember to take the acyclovir 5 times a day - I've set my alarm on the phone to help after spending ages trying to work out 5s into 24 hours!
I took off my bra, but it actually seems more painful without, so I've just put it back on, but more loosely. I'm a bit fed up that I'll have to fore-go my aquafit sessions.
Anyone had this and any tips on how best to manage it?
