Bloods came back not too bad. Inflammatory markers right down to five, only a slight prob with white cell count, but not significant enough to worry. All others look fine!
I've been on leflunomide for just over a month. Only mild side effects so far, apart from stomach pain, and a stinking cold. Still have some stiffness and pain, and the mornings are a bit grim, but otherwise things are better than they were. Not perfect, but better!
When I think of how I was before steroids etc, I cringe. I couldn't even roll over in bed.
Sulfasalazine was a nightmare drug for me, and to be honest I was terrified of trying another drug. I had a terrible reaction to it, in the form of a nasty mixed bipolar episode. Phew...never again!
Here's another winter scene to celebrate 🎉
