Quick recap. Diagnosed with MPA Wegeners in Oct 2015 and put onto Prednisolone and Mycophenolate. Prednisolone was reduced and stopped by early 2017 but continued on MMF 2 x 500mg morning and 2 x 500mg evenings.
After bloods being monitored monthly and stable results for all the rest of 2017. Then into Oct. 2017 and was happy to hear that the Doc was going to reduce the MMF to 1 x 500mg morning and evening, and I was fine all through. Then Dec. 2017 reduced to 1 x 500mg daily until mid Jan 2018 when I was to stop altogether, no adverse health issue so far.
Then about mid Feb I started to have a dry cough, didn't take much notice because lots of people have a cough this time of year!
Problem is its now almost April and I am still having cold and flue like symptoms! I have had joint pain In my arm, sometimes the right and then the left, very sore to twist my wrists for a day or so then it goes. But what gets to me the most is lots of sneezing, blocked sinuses and still this dry cough.
I have been to my GP who promptly sent me for a chest xray and that showed an infection so I was put onto anti biotic's, they didn't work so I was given a second course to try and dry up the sinus issue.
I am now waiting to get to see the Rhumy. and see what the next plan of action is going to be as I still have no improvement.
I was wondering if anyone can shed a light on whether this is a relapse so soon after stopping the meds? And when I get to see the Rhumy what questions I should be asking?
Cheers all and hope things are good for you.
