Wondering if others doctors have done x-rays to help diagnose? Hoping this one is a little more pro active in helping me. I have been on Enbrel injections for a few years but it seems to not be working as well now. I have psoriatic arthritis and now believe I may have axial spondylitis in my lower back at my hips. I am a housekeeper in a nursing home so my job is terrible for my condition but what can you do when you have been there 20 + years. Too late to change jobs now. I am having constant burning sensation in my back and then if the inflammation gets too bad it pinches my sciatic nerve, fun stuff! When I try to take a break from being on my feet all the time I stiffen up so fast getting out of a chair is painful. I'm 53 and hopeful I can use diet, exercise and meds to slow the process of my body giving out on my.
Yikes! Yesterday, I had an episode of double vision (while driving!) with some intense pressure in my brain bucket, behind my eyes. (not painful, just presure). today the presure is back but concentrated on the right side of my head and i can feel it into my face. Also my right arm feels weak and tired. Odd thing to have an arm feel tired.I'm off to the doc this afternoon. Hope is nothing...
Is anyone on an alternate daily dosage of low dose prednisone? If so, How is it going? How long have you been on it this way?
