My RA consultant is a bully.
Hello. I'm new here so please forgive any mistakes. I need some advice. I have been stuck in my bedroom since February as I can't manage the stairs. My consultant has DEMANDED that I attend an appointment at the hospital or "i will no longer treat you" even though I explained the situation. My GP is no help and regularly reduces me to tears. I am in CONSTANT pain. I have a morphine patch that is useless. I take tramadol which might as well be Smarties. They stopped my Oramorph which was the only thing that helped. I am on so much medication i must rattle! I take Amitriptyline, Baricitinib, tramadol, iron, folic acid, vitamin c and prednisalone. I cant cope with the pain. No one listens and they all bully me into doing what they want. I am so fed up. My RA is ruining my life. How do I get my consultant to understand that I have pain everywhere. I also have fibromyalgia and he blames that for everything. I tell him I get symptoms A,B and C and he says thats not a side effect of the medications. But if I'm getting them what do I Do? I always feel like a naughty school pupil when I've seen him.
