So called my hospital this morning. They want to see me tomorrow as an urgent case. I have not been able to tolerate, methotrexate, sulfasalazine or hydroxycholquinine. I have had two steroid injections but with no effect.
They are now saying they think I need oral steroids and also to try lefludomide. One of the reasons I can't tolerate the other drugs is the stomach problems.
What are the side effects of the steroids. I'm really worried I'm going to end up moon faced and huge. I don't think I can take that.
I also see hair loss is a major issue with lefludomide. So am I going to swap pain for being a bald, moon faced blob. If I didn't feel depressed before I do now
