Hi everyone , I'm Nyssa , I'm 34 from kent and I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis back in march last year! I've had a very up and down year with lots of pain and the arthritis spreading and getting worse , am now on salfasalazine tablets and they seem to be helping although I have been getting awful headaches! Have only been on the tablets for 5 weeks so am trying to stick them out and hope they headaches settle down soon.x

    I've not had sulph but I know the headaches are common. We have a thread on the Living With Arthritis forum currently about them as Rach101 is experiencing similar problems. I think it's good that you're trying to persevere with them but, if it gets too bad, please ring your rheumatology helpline for advice
