That's how things feel for me at the minute!
I developed a really bad cough that hurts my ribs and back and leaves me breathless, even when not coughing so I saw gp on Monday and was given a course of antibiotics and told to stop taking the methotrexate. After speaking to rhuemy, I was told to stop the enbrel too.
This is the 5/6 day of taking antibiotics and my cough seems to be getting worse, instead of better. More than this, my joints ( those that are my own!) are sore and stiff and my hands are so swollen and painful.
Is this because Ive had no biologic and methotrexate for the week? Can things deteriorate, in terms of RA/AS this quickly?
It seems horribly counter productive - to attempt to tackle one thing at the cost of another, so to speak.
Apologies, sore and been wide awake for hours and just ranting I guess .
Wishing you all a pain free Saturday.
