Hi, my name is Doreen143!
Hello my name is Doreen I've had Chronic brittle asthma for 20 years,in 2015 I couldn't walk after having mri scans xrays and blood test I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. I'm finding life really difficult at the moment,I've come off Tramadol 50mg×3 three times a day,stop Morphine patches 50mg . I was taking Methotrexate (chemotherapy tablet)but the side effects where very bad,so after lots of visits to Rheumatologist I'm now taking Leflunomide 10mg a day also Sulfasalazine 1500mg morning and night. First tablets I'm getting some relief from But the side effects dizziness and nausea are not good. Hospital and doctors saying to stick with it because they are common side effects and should pass. I'm on home oxygen for my asthma so really don't have a life. So just hoping thing are going to get better. I'm 61
