I was diagnosed with a seronegative spondyloarthropathy in my sacroiliac joint 2 years ago (I'm 27), which is probably PSa as there is psoriasis in my family.
I'm on depomedrone injections and nortiptaline. I had a bad flare this weekend and as no one was around GP wise had to see emerg Dr who prescriped naproxen and solpadol. I spent the next few hours being sick due to the solpadol! Now my GP has prescribed similar painkillers but slightly less strong. I'm not on Mtx as apparently it isn't as effective with spine conditions as other joints and that vs the side effects meant for now I am not taking it, plus my arthritis seems to be just in my sacroiliac joint and hasn't progressed.
I am just frustrated with the lack of support for flares between steroid injections and feel I have no support. I have pushed to be referred to pain management clinic today.
I see the physio, have a sports massage every month and chiropractor every 3 months or so. But this weekend I was in agony with muscle spasms and I didn't know what to do!
Has anyone else felt like this and what helped you? Sorry for the essay and rant!
