I'm feeling sick again. But it's not that. It's the fact that I'm constantly out of sorts,very low in energy, no appetite, a horrible taste in my mouth and a feeling like I've swallowed a golf ball. I can't really explain but I have a sort of generalised stiffness and vague ache, especially in my lower back. I was sick all day on Monday and since then I've returned to the general malaise although don't feel like I'm going to be sick anymore - but all I'm good for is lying down - even sitting in chairs wears me out and makes me uncomfortable?
I know you've all done your best to advise me already. My GP thought it was unlikely that I'd go from feeling fine (well with just a day or two of feeling wabbit) on 15mg to a whole new nausea thing from increasing my dose by one MTX pill. So I thought it must have been overdoing things with all my singing, or a tummy virus etc.
But I still feel crap and can't hack much more of it to be honest. I am normally pretty energetic and optimistic even when in pain - which I'm not currently - just weird discomfort somewhere between my tummy and my lower back and my chest? So am starting to worry. Could this be MTX on it's own, MTX combined with Hydroxy, nothing to do with either of them as my GP implied? Or could it all be psychological, or could this possibly be active RA even though my joints don't feel pained or swollen - just stiff and achy? I am so confused.
Our car comes back home on the ferry on Saturday morning and we are booked to travel down to Edinburgh in the afternoon - staying in the flat four flights up with no lift. At the moment I can't imagine climbing even one flight my energy levels are so low. I'm really stiff and sluggish and feel this vague crushing sensation on my chest. It''s been a beautiful sunny afternoon and normally, if I was remotely pain free like this I'd be springing around walking the dog over the hill and generally bustling about. But my body feels heavy and bloated and uncomfortable all the time from waking until bed time. Your thoughts?!
