Despite taking the meds that my doctor gave me for my nausea, it came back last night full force.
I have to say with being on steroids, I don't mind the appetite loss but the nauseated feeling of it all is terrible for me.
We did labs last week and my blood tests came back in the normal range, it's not a flare according to that but I'm certainly feeling that I'm in the beginning stages of one. Other things that I have noticed that have been bothering me is joint pain. I got up from my desk at work yesterday to go to the bathroom and it was difficult to get my ankles and knees to cooperate, they were very stiff and a little painful. I also have what I suspect is tendon pain (it hasn't been diagnosed) which is constant.. I've addressed this 'tendon' pain with my primary care physician and my gastro doctor and every time I say something, it's ignored.
I was given Celebrex by my PCP but I can't take it, I called my gastro to make sure and I was advised to not take it since it may cause some issues. Fine.. whatever.. just give me something thats going to help this once healthy and relatively active 26 year old not feel like an arthritic 70 year old.
Am I crazy to think that I may not be getting the car that I need?
