So I posted that hydroxychloroquine was magic for me but over the last couple of weeks I've been hit with it all again. I thought HCQ had fixed me and that was that. I was 5 days without meds but I've had many days of flaring now.
I'm struggling to work, sleep, live properly. I know I only have mild RA (and seronegative and no inflammation markers) but I had a glimpse of a normal life and want it back (even with the side effects of no immunity).
Rheumatology apt in a few weeks. Will they give me a steroid injection if I ask for one? Are there any cons of getting this?
Also I've always assumed my back pain was mechanical and not related to the RA but the pain was much reduced when HCQ started working and has come back with a vengeance with this flare. I thought RA didn't affect the back/spine??
So so so fatigued ....
