I am struggling so much with the pain of inflammatory arthritis and finding a drug which will help without b******** up my immune system with regard to the bronchiectasis.
I have tried hydroxycloriquin and they gave me migraine. For the last two weeks I have had a break from the troublesome HI and so started with sulphasalazine. I felt very wheezy on these and my stomach was so sore and raw it radiated up in my chest and I have been struggling to walk around because of the effects of the drugs and with the pain of the arth.
I am so concerned to try any more DMARDS eg methotrexate with regard to my lungs.
The pain has me waking up about every hour or so when I need to turn in bed and then I have to sit up to do so.
I am wondering if anyone has found anything which has worked for them. I am conerned the only answer will be steroids.
Any advice or experience will be appreciated.
