I am new here as I have spent months under a general medicine specialist who in the end thought it was all in my mind. On my insistence he referred me to a rheumy who has told me he thinks I have a combination of lupus & RA - rhupus as he called it - and possibly sjogenrns too. Bone scan showed arthritis in nearly every joint and something starting with s in my hands? I don't go back until mid August after all the new testing and I am very chemical sensitive so can't take many drugs- NSAIDs, most pain relief etc are out. My only option given was to take fish oil which makes me vomit and panadol osteo that hardly touches the pain. I work full time and am starting to struggle getting through the day. My question is does anyone else have this combo, how does it affect you and what is the progression like. This all started after an infection after hysterectomy last April. It is getting progressively worse as the months go by so I am wondering where I will be at in another 12 months. Any thoughts please.
