Hello my name is davina and i am 29yrs old with a 1yr old.
I have been experiencing joint pain, swelling and general unwellness for about 6 months now
i am in pain costantly and trying to look after a 1yr old is so difficault when your body don't want to move, lol i fell like a walking iron board most evenings and mornings. (sound stupid i know, sorry)!
my doctor is very good as he specalises in rhematoid problems and understands why when i say i can't work in my job as a waitress he understands and signed me off work.
i am current waiting to see a rhuemy but seams like forever, will see him on the 20th so fingers crossed.
i was just wondering if any one is taking tramadol for pain and does it help them as it seams to help on most days but other days i am in agony like 2day, and also i am not really experiencing much swelling only on my knees and hands, is this normal?
I am also on diclofenc 75, prednisolone 10mg and amitriptyline 10 mg.
i was on 15mg of prednisolone but i was getting really bad headaches and sickness and dizzyness and still getting pain with this med , thought this should ease or stop?
to top this off i have a big hurnia for my c section scar after having my son so its not nice to be me
i'm so sorry to have wrote so much and if you read it all thank you
