Been a while since I've been on here, last time was when hubby was newly diagnosed with RA and fibromyalgia.
Well we've had one major change...we'll two actually...1st was change of consultant (who diagnosed fibro without doing any basic tests!) and the 2nd was the new consultant who did basic tests and ruled out fibro!!
Anyway...hubby is still in immense pain. Joints, bones, muscles, migraines. The lot. He looks grey with the pain. He is suffering terribly and his mental health is on a downwards slope.
He feels the meth isn't working and the gp he saw today believes he may have to go to hospital weekly for meth administered via a drip (or something like that!)
I've been reading up on here and see lots of you have the injections. Do you administer them yourselves? And is that intravenously or intramuscular?
How much of an improvement did you see when you switched?
I'm trying to search for a bit of light to give him as he believes this is it now. That this is life with RA.
I keep telling him there's lots of other drugs out there but he's on a massive downer.
He's around a year post diagnosis with no improvement.
Any help or advice is appreciated.
