Hello I am new here, I am 36 and have recently been diagnosed with palindromic rheumatism, which apparently will progress into rheumatoid arthritis. I was put on hyrochloroquinine straight away which has stopped all flare ups, which is wonderful....but
I now find myself feeling exausted most of the time, I have dizzy/spaced out moments, last week I fainted and had a fit after getting up from kneeling on the floor.
No matter how much I eat I feel like my blood sugar is always low, even though i know it's fine.
I lost 6 pounds in weight over Christmas despite eating plenty, I'm putting this down to anxiety which I take meds for.
But it a vicious circle, does any of this sound similar to anyone else, I don't know if these symptoms are "normal" for this illness or if my anxiety is making it seem worse. Basically I feel clueless and alone, im keeping it together for my children, but could do with someone to talk to.
Thanks for reading ☺️
