My dear husband has been diagnosed with heart problems and needs triple heart by pass he is73 fit well never had a days illness and only found out as mentioned at his yearly checkup he got a bit breathless walking the dog uphill ,he is still working in a job he loves he works for the film industry building sets he wants to work till he is 75 then he would have done 60 years!, his consultant said he could be back after 6 weeks (he has just stated the new Batman movie)
I have got down to 7mg of preds I’m so stressed my body aches shoulders very bad I’m so tired , not sleeping ,tearful , trying to be so positive for hubby
I was doing so well having given methotrexate a go but side effects too much felt so much better when I stopped them
Dose stress make Pmr worst,should I increase dosage ? given amatriptline. When first stated on preds but made me very sleepy, but heard it can work as antidepressant,
Not seeing rhumie till nov, and don’t want to see doc as hubby would want to know and I don’t want to stress him out
Any ideas dear fellow members?..
