I'm finding things really difficult
Out of the blue I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis in October 2020 and was prescribed Sulfasalazine and then also Methotrexate and NSAIDs. I've been in a lot of pain since early May despite consultations with both my GP and rheumatology clinic. Ten days ago my heart went into atrial fibrillation and I was rushed to A&E. I've never before had a problem with my heart and I honestly feel this was caused by the joint pain I was in. I'm now on heart medication so they stopped my Etodalac NSAID. Last Thursday I was rushed back to hospital due to my pain levels. I was given morphine and 12 hours later given 80mg Kenalog injection after being admitted. I've been kept in the hospital since then for observation and pain relief. Today I was seen by a rheumatology consultant who said he sees no signs of PsA and thinks I may have osteoarthritis.
I'm really at my wit's end with all of this.
