My gp recently said my blood results were all normal, and considered my RA had 'burnt itself out'. He advised me to stop all my drugs (sulphasalazine, arcozia and lansoprazole) which I did, but all my symptoms returned. I saw a different gp who said to start them again, but did not say do it gradually, and I had several infections requiring antibiotics due to side effects. So I started them again slowly and have only now found relief. Has anyone ever heard of this 'diagnosis'?
