Hi I am at my wits end. I was diagnosed in 2009 and I have tried various meds such as Methatrixate and hydrochloride and am currently on sulphasalazine.
In my opinion it is not working and I am constantly in pain and suffer from chronic fatigue. My GP recently brough my consultant appointment forward and I saw a locum who was fab! She really listened and did my DAS. She then said that I needed to move on to a different type of treatment called humera. She did loads of tests and said that I would need to see my consultant in 1 month time and start treatment.
I waited patiently and was eventually sent an appointment for 2 months time.. Saw him (my usual consultant) this week and now he said that I did no need new treatment as I have not got inflamation, I may have sensitive joints???
I am in constant pain. I can't plan a week ahead as I can wake up and not be able to get out of be some days! I am on antidepressants and to be honest just feel like giving up. I have a wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter who wants her old mummy back...
I was reviewd by the job centre and even though the person who reviewd me put in the report that in his,opinion I would not be fit for work for at 2-3 years I was put in a can work with support group!! The only positive was the lady I saw at the job centre was really nice and does not want to see me again for 6 months. She in fact said that I should appeal?? I have not got the energy.
Sorry to be so moany but I am not sure what to do next. Any advice would be really appreciated.
