I've posted here before on my troubles getting a diagnosis since all my bloodtest and imaging are negative.
It seems I finally found a rheumy who are willing to listen and start all over trying to figure out what causes my joint pain and stiffnes
However for the past 2 months I've been on oral prednisolone (low dose 7,5mg), which have reduced the pain and stiffness and given me enough energy to cope with fulltime work.
In order for it not to mask any symptoms my rheumy have asked me to stop them and manage on paracetamol and ibuprofen. I understand her reasoning for this and is willing to do almost anything to move on and get some treatment. However I also need to be able to work and manage the everyday. So if anyone have any tips on how to cope with the pain while on OTC painkillers please share
I have prevously tried Codein, which didn't seem to have any great effect and tramadol, which helped with the pain but unfortunately made me constantly dizzy so I couldn't cope with them.
