I'm sure plenty of us are on this particular treadmill, but I can't seem to see an end to it.
I'm taking fortnightly injections of Humira, which seem to last about ten days, my flare ups seem to get closer together and the good times further apart. So I revert back to Prednisolone for a six week course, titrate the dose down and come off, then the stiffness, fatigue, flu symptoms, chronic pain ramps up and I start the whole process again. I've had two lots of steroids this year. And I know it caused my blood sugar levels to increase, weight gain etc.
I've also been suffering with chronic anaemia.
I have PsA, Fibromyalgia, Kidney and Lymph Node cancer.
Is there anything I can do besides, MST Morphine. Anyone else with PsA + Fibromyalgia, does anything different and live a life not dependent on steroids for normality.
I'm desperate to break this vicious circle and be fitter again.
But after steroids, I can hardly walk, and standing becomes so painful after several minutes
