Feeling so alone
Hello everyone. I joined this community so that I can talk to people who may be going through the same thing as me. After being treated for what my doctor thought was gout, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia in 2018. I was given various medications to try but nothing was helping me. Then the pandemic struck.. I was having ‘phone consultations’ every 6 months, all the while being given different pills, most of which I couldn’t even tolerate. I have felt so alone, with nobody to turn to. My condition has deteriorated rapidly, I can barely walk, and I’m in constant pain. I have now been told that I’m to be put on biologics. I’ve heard so much about the bad side effects they can cause, and how they could leave you vulnerable to picking up any infection going around. I’m torn right now and don’t know what I should do. I just want my life back. Sorry for rambling on.
