I have had a very tough few weeks. After being told how well I was doing with my RA, my medication, my lifestyle etc, they then decide to change everything. They reduced my MTX, they told me to stop taking painkillers, they prescribed Amitripylene, then Gabapentin. It made everything worse. I have been in agony and have had pain and headaches from hell ever since. My dry mouth came back and I was seriously down in the dumps
My GP told me one thing, another GP told me another, and a 3rd GP told me to not listen to either and to go back to what I was doing, as it was obviously working for me.
What a bloody ridiculous waste of time and money, my time and the NHS's money. I felt like screaming "Leave me alone, I was fine until you messed with everything".
I have now had an apology from my GP’s surgery and another appointment with my rheumatologist to try and put things straight. The third GP even told me to start taking the paracetamol again!!
