Arm rash

Some of you might remember me telling you about the rash on my arms. Well today I have been to see my Dr as it appeared to be getting worse and I feel dreadful. My Dr took one look and had said hat I have Cellititis. I am on a heavy dose of Penicillin and have been told that if it spreads anymore I might need to go to hospital for IV antibiotics because I am amunosuppressed.

To top it all I also have sore tissues in my neck and the muscles have gone into spasm. I have been given Tramadol for that,so not a good day. At least with all the Tramadol I might get some sleep tonight,as I haven't been sleeping these last few nights.

Best wishes

Jane xx

Thank you everyone for your replays. I slept well with the Tramodol,well at least a lot better that I have been. My shoulder is in agony tho,how on earth have I done that? The Dr said that my soft tissues in my neck and shoulder are all inflamed and the muscles have just all tightened up. Pure agony!

Oh you poor thing, please take care with your cellulitis and definitely check at least four times a day it's not spreading. As if RA wasn't enough you have all this. Neck spasm can be so painful, I hope it all resolves for you soon. Sending you get well thoughts x

You poor thing! I cannot function without sleep and take melatonin on a regular basis

Everything for me after even 5 or 6 hours.

Good luck with the treatment! 😇

OOh not nice. I've had cellulitis a couple of times. First time worse - had a mosquito bite on holiday that got infected, first night back and I was taken into hospital. It was on my leg and spreading and docs were concerned it might reach my knee replacement which would have been a nightmare -so had black outline drawn round it! Take care -it should soon clear up with antibiotics!

It is starting to clear up at last, but I have been very ill. I am off my RA meds at the moment. I was on Humeria but it stopped working so I was told to stop taking it.

My other problem at the moment is the pain I am getting from my neck which goes down my arm. This is the worst pain ever. The Dr gave me some Tramadol which does help but it means I have to lie down and sleep.

What do you think this pain is?
