Sorry for posting on here again as no definitive diagnoses of RA but feeling so let down yet again. I saw pain clinic doctor who recommended longterm steroids and a referral to immunologist as he believes my immune system is attacking everything. Had let myself become slightly hopeful that I may get somewhere at long last. But no, saw GP she won't prescribe the steroids because she doesn't want me on them longterm which I completely understand but what am I meant to do now when they are the only thing that takes the debilitating pain away. It don't matter what I do I get given a bit of hope and then they snatch it away again.
