As some will know I'm relatively knew to diagnosis and am trying my best to manage it, being a husband and father as well as returning to work after two months off. My mood swings have been up and down which in light of every thing is to be expected.
GP on Friday told me I should try anti-depressants to help
with relaxing and pain as I've been on codine now for over three years. I'm loath to though as its been tough enough to deal with side effects of mtx and hydro let alone sertraline as well. I've heard scary things about them.
It's difficult dome times to make the right decision and you put faith in GPs whom don't always know. I have first of two appointments with Rheumy team in February so will wait before taking any thing else but do need to wean of the codine I think. Lots of pain in neck shoulder still I think they may put mtx up from 15 once a week it's so bloody difficult at times
