Thank you all for your comments and advice. I really appreciate it and it helps hearing how we are all affected in different ways.
Unfortunately there is no improvement in how I feel. In fact I feel worse. I have just spent the whole night tossing and turning in bed with no sleep. I have been very anxious and panicy and a new thing for me is ive been itchy. My whole body feels like its alive! I feel very sick and cant even tolerate my favourite tipple of a cup of tea!
I wonder now if the anti depressant my GP gave me is adding to my symptoms, venlafaxine, although it has helped to reduce night sweats and flushes.
My husband just wants to take me and all my meds up to the hospital today, but I dont think they understand RA like our nurses do.
Im truly at my wits end with it all.
