Hello. I would love your advice on pain relief please. I started with reactive arthritis a few years ago due to a bug I picked up at the nursery where I teach. I was in a wheelchair for a bit and ended up on medication for a few years while it got under control.
Last year, I had another flare up and have been in pain in both legs throughout. I have been told it is now sieronegative inflammatory arthritis. I have tried so many medications all without joy, I'm now waiting for my course of biologics to start in a few weeks but am in so much pain daily. The pain is more throughout my whole leg and not particularly the knee joint. I struggle to walk and feel like my legs are lead weights. I have had 2 courses of steroids which helped but am not allowed any more now. I'm currently on sulfasalazine, leflunomide, cocodamol and etoricoxib but not sure I can cope with this pain for much longer.
How do you all cope with the constant pain?
