Well, the steroid has helped with the pain , but now I feel really ill with a high temperature, sore skin and eyes. I can't stop sleeping. Can't eat. Well, don't think there's much food in anyway. I've been told by the rheum nurse to stop the MTX and hydroxichloroquine until I can have a blood test at the end of the week, she'll look at it on Monday.just wondering if my raised inflammatory markers ere this virus, and does that mean that the steroid will compromise my ability to see it off?
