Hi all, I’ve not been on here for a long time. In the last 2 years I’ve seen a change in my psoriatic arthritis symptoms. Starting off with just the odd flare here & there in joints I hadn’t experienced before - then finding to recently having flares every week or different flares within a week.
I saw my reumatology nurse & they upped my methotrexate by 2.5mg but I’ve noticed no difference at all. I do notice much worse flares when I do get a period now & so I looked into this & found a whole load of info about menopause increasing flares & worsening inflammatory arthritis. No one has talked to me about this despite calling nurses & having appointments at GP’s etc. Has anyone else found flares worsening? I’m panicking I’m going backwards & I’ll never get this under control again. I work full time, have 2 children 8 & 11 & my partner doesn’t work. I’m really struggling & feel so tired, low, isolated & alone. I’m losing hope agsin after Hank go had 6 years of no flares & a well controlled disease. I’m just exhausted & my partner just doesn’t like me talking about my disease he’s useless.
