Hope well here I am 6 months later and still unwell had scans on most parts of my body awaiting one on my tummy and a colonoscopy.
So far nothing has come back as nasty thank God. But my bloods show lots of infection and inflammation going on. Doctors given me a course of anti biotics incase it's my sinus again. My rhuematoid guy has done an ultra sound on my hands and because there is no sign of anything bad he not willing to change my meds. He said I've got something else going on that is flaring my RA up.
Wants to see me in a month n meanwhile put me on these patches, omg I am not going to take them they frighten me to death. Butrans patches ! I had a very bad experience being on tramadol and not willing to go there again. Has anyone had experience of these? Because I'm having trouble with my tummy etc these bypass it which is great, but I don't want to be taking such bad pain killers when all it's going to do is mask the problem rather than finding a solution.
My RA has never been so painful, surely I shouldn't be in this much pain . But it's finding out what infection I've got going on is the problem.
I have suffered with thrush in the past with being on anti biotics , had one treatment for that. Has anyone had this situation and could that be the infection that's causing my flair 6 month long flair up.
My body my muscles hurt my glands keep coming up and hurting, my throat is constantly sore .and I'm exhausted all the time. They gave me a short course of steriods which didn't work their usual magic which shows I got an infections going on.bit instead they broke me out in a dark red rash which still hasn't gone, so that's weird too.
If anyone has any ideas or this rings any bells please let me know as it looks like the doctors n consultants are running out of ideas.
He did say with being on metho I could have bacteria in my gut which also could cause this flair up ! Has anyone heard of this?
Sorry to go on guys , but I'm trying like all of us to fix me.
