I'm beginning to get to my wits end and really don't know which way to turn. I've been on here a few times asking for advice and need some more please. I've been trying for a baby since last October, managed to fall pregnant straight away, sadly miscarried and am back to trying again. At the same time I'm having a really bad time with my joints particularly my knee which is really having a massive effect on my day to day life due to the synovial lining being so inflammed. I'm on a low does of steroids but they aren't touching it and can't be on my regular enbrel whilst trying to conceive. Another option is to try sulfaslazine which I took many years ago when I was first diagnosed but didn't have much effect and made me feel very sick. You can take this whilst trying to conceive but it can take a few months to get into the system.
I'm at a point where I don't know what to do and think it could be time to give up trying and go back on enbrel to try and get some control over my life. At the same time the thought of not trying for a baby makes me so sad as it's what I really want. I feel so angry that this illness is having such a huge impact on my life and feel like it's stoppping me from having what I want and this stage in my life. I'm 34 and know that time is ticking by.
If anyone has been in the same boat I would love to hear from you as I don't know where else to turn.
Wishing you all a pain free day x
