i know i havent been on here in along time but need to get things off my chest tonight to people who can only truely understand what its like suffering Ra.im not having a good pregnancy(well i am in terms of sickness).im in agony in bed with hip pain (which i had before mtx) then had awful upper back pain which is starting to cripple me.lastweek i rang my rheumatoid nurse who was brilliant and referred me for physio later in month.she reckons its trochanteric burstitis(in my hips),which can be helped with ultrasound.
during all that ive been working fulltime as a hairdresser.
now a whole new situation has occured,,, im now having a bad flareup untop of that,the pain is from my shoulders right down to my knees.im like a 90 yr old when ive sat for 5 mins and then have to get up.
ive read so many great things about pregnancy keeping RA in remission,and i feel really sad that im so sore when i should be enjoying this precious time,and also being selfemployed really is taking its toll on me.
my gp prescribed 500mg paracetamol which is equivalent to smarties,but was her that agreed that its all down to Ra.
if anyone can give me any advice thank you.
and hope you are all well
love sarah xxx
