Hi I hope you’re well. I was diagnosed last month and have started steroids and DMARDs, the steroids are now a low dose and most of my symptoms prior to starting have returned and the DMARDs haven’t made a difference yet.
In March I contracted coronavirus and this triggered a big flare, I’ve been pretty much housebound since then. As a result my muscles are weak on top of the pain and fatigue, I’m struggling with how to move forward.
My rheumatology team hasn’t been great and I feel a bit left in the dark, I’m planning to phone up my GP and ask to be referred for physio. I’m debating a wheelchair just to get out the house. I was wondering if anyone else could relate or share their experiences? I’m new to this online community :) thanks for reading!
