I’m doing well arthritis wise and have been told it has gone into remission which is great news.
However, I’m currently on hydroxychloroquine and sulfasalazine and over the past couple of months I’ve had one illness after the other. Throat infections, cold and coughs etc.
My question is do you think it’s worth stopping the tablets for a day or a few days to allow my body to recover? Or will it cause a flare? What do you guys do? I’ve ended up having various days off work and I’m told I’m at a trigger point so I really can’t afford to have any more time off. I lost my last job due to the arthritis so I don’t have a great track record.
I don’t have a helpline I can call so I’d really appreciate any advice.
Thanks Rach xx
