I’ve had RA for 5 years and have only been ok on MXT but I get regular flares and lately my feet have now started to deteriorate faster then other joints.
Along side this I have had regular bouts of depression, insomnia, night sweats, brain fog/memory loss, severe fatigue, and worsening anxiety which I’ve always had an issue with to be honest but more worrying to these things I’ve had irregular bleeding for a year now.
Whenever I’ve gone to my doctor about these symptoms they say it’s my RA or it’s my medication and to try to eat healthier and get some exercise which is almost impossible with my feet.
All tests for hormone issues, early menopause, sti’s etc have come up clear including smear tests but I’ve now been referred to a Gyno to make further checks for cancerous cells.
I must also now pick a biologic to stop further joint damage but am petrified about the possible cancer risks associated with them and what’s happening to me at the moment.
I spoke to my partner about my problem and he said ‘really?’ and picked up his phone to do other things, I was so upset and told him I was worried about all of the above, which he’s known for some time, and wanted advice but it ended in an arguement and I still feel as though no one either professionally or personally is listening to me.
I feel as though I can’t take it anymore and I’m always crying, tired and in pain and I don’t know where else to turn or what else to do anymore
