I was diagnosed with RA 3 years ago.
I have a feeling Im not being taken care of properly.... I see my doctor every 3 months.. I feel that he doesnt understand how much pain I'm in.
I am feeling very depressed, I went to see my GP 2 weeks ago who told me someone will contact me to discuss about my depression but nothing yet.
I am in a lot of pain.. I take tramadol every 4 hours none stop since last year and still in a lot of pain... I don't feel well at all and the weather I think is not helping me at all.
I am on mtx 25mg weekly, 1 folic acid twice a week, 1 prednisolone daily and 2 or 4 Amitriptyline daily.. I am having problem sleeping, I have a good life but my health is stopping me from doing things.
I feel so dispressed, so tired, and feel like I can sleep for england.No energy. I keep forcing myself to do thing. I feel I just work, sleep, eat, and sit and do nothing.
It's all so confusing for me.
Any idea where I can have some proper help.. I am thinking of going private. Just want the pain to stop.
Any ideas welcome.. Thanks in advance..
