Hi all. I'm a 57yr old granny who has just been told by her GP yet again that it's "all in your head". Blood tests came back clear so he decided I don't have any form of arthritis other than "normal wear and tear for my age"
This is despite diagnosing me with Sjogrens a couple of years ago, seeing my hands look like I'm wearing boxing gloves..I keep dropping cups, pans, can't open screw lids, peel off lids etc and have lots of pain in hands, elbows, shoulders and neck. He did prescribe Tramacet though..not what I wanted at all tbh. Not been able to kneel down for almost 20 years due to extreme pain in swollen knees
I have asthma, psoriasis and an allergy/sensitivity to NSAIDS (including damn Voltarol cream which he gave me 2 weeks ago to try but I might as well have swallowed it, same effect!) so am now sitting here, on a beautiful sunny day, in floods of tears as I've just dropped the dinner all over the floor yet again. I need help very badly but don't know where to get it.
