I am 16 weeks pregnant and was diagnosed with RA approx. 4 weeks ago. I have been given Hydroxychloroquine and Sulfasalazine (4 Tablets a day) which I have been taking for approx. 3.5 weeks.
I was feeling fine on them until last week and now I seem to get chronic headaches and neck pain every day. My question is - has anyone else had this and kept taking the meds for it to get better?
They haven't done anything for the RA yet but I know this can take a few months.
I also have Gestational Diabetes and am taking Metformin and Insulin for this. I read that they can interfere with each other but my Diabetic team have said no.
I work full time and have a 2.5 year old so all in all its taking its toll and I could do with some words of encouragement to keep going!
Sorry for rambling and thanks for reading!
