I was diagnosed with Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis 11 years ago, and then also with Psoriatic Arthritis some 4 years later.
I have tried many medications over the years, and for the last 2 have been taking Baricinitib which works quite well for me, however, to keep the inflammation under control I take a maintenance dose of Prednisolone daily.
Last month following several weeks of feeling generally unwell I had a blood test, this showed very low levels of Cortisol, I was told to go directly to A&E and I was subsequently admitted. I am still undergoing tests but the hospital have said they believe I have secondary adrenal insufficiency, caused by long term steroid use.
I am eager to hear from anyone who may have a similar experience.
