hi, i have just got back from the rheumatologist today, 1st proper appointment since this started, he has taken me off the sulphasalazine as it is giving me headaches and i am feeling really rock bottom!! the thing is he hasnt given me another tablet to take its place and i dotn see him again for another 8 weeks. he gave me a steroid injection in my hand. just wondered and am a bit worried about my treatment? what now i thought they were supposed to treat quickly now do i have to wait another 8 weeks!! i have told him that i feel very low (i was tearful), i feel ill and not myself, cold one minute hot the next i feel like i have a cold coming and then nothing, i wake up stiff in the morning,(sorry rant rant rant) and i donot feel very comforted about anything today he has said that i have all symptons of psoriatic arthritis (not the psoriasis) but i dont show up having the rheumatoid factor so i have seronegative arthritis i am so confused i thought you went to get information and help i am feel worse off now than i was yesterday, he said i can take anti inflammatories but how can i stop bone damage ( i have that on my toe already??)) has anyone else been in this position and what did they do? please help thanks
