I was diagnosed in Dec 2012, Initially was given an injection of steroids, which didn't really help, then was given two types of drugs which I had a really bad reaction to, and was hospitalised twice in January, went to see my consultant on Monday, and he advised Gold injections, then rang me to say I couldn't go on those either. I also have chronic idiopathic Fibrosiis of the lungs, and unfortunately some of the drugs affect the lungs. Has anybody else got fibrosis of the lungs? My consultant said their is a link between the two conditions. At the moment I take co~dydramol for the pain. I am just concerned about getting disfigured joints and the intense pain when I have a bad flare up! Xxx
