Hello everyone - I'm hoping someone might have some advice to offer.
I had a first rheumatoid consultant appointment back in May and was given a life transforming steriod injection. It was heaven. I've noticed in the last couple of weeks that I'm slipping back into the difficulties I had previously - getting slower, joints more stiff & swollen etc. Luckily I have a follow up towards the end of this month and I'm really hoping I'll be offered a second injection.
Yesterday I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia and put on Carbamazepine. I don't feel I have much choice as the pain is pretty awful. I work and am desperate to stay at work plus I don't get sick pay.
Does anyone know if I'll still be able to have the steroid at my next appointment if I'm still taking the Carbamazepine?
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
