Hello My name is Sarah and I have RA, I was diagnosed 12 months ago, I was unsure what to take what with the medication being so toxic, I opted for sulphursalazine but this wiped my white cells out and I was ill for a while, I have had 2 Depi-Medrone injections and now I am on Methitrexate 15mg X 6 tablets. Last night I had to go to hospital, another flare up, I had an emergency Depo-Medrone injection and I have to see how it goes for the next 2 weeks, if all ok my medication will remain the same if not my tablets will be increased to 20mg.
I just feel so fed up as I'm off work more than I am there at the moment.
Feeling very sorry for myself at the moment as I am unable to exercise due to extreme pain in my feet, orthotics have made me insoles but they are so thick I cannot get shoes to fit them. Can anyone offer advice please
