Rosie, Aparentely our diseases are treated the same. I need new ideas to ask my doctor about meds I can take. The imuran made me have severe vomiting, gi bleeding. I can not take methotrexate due to my liver tests. I tried taking cellcept last week, I devoloped hives (feeled clammy, part of me heating up, other part cold, headache, and tingling in hand. When looked in mirror I was beet red).
With the prednisone I get hotflashes, wierd stretch makes all over my body, muscle cramps & spasms. Those are symptoms from my medications.
My Body symptoms-- Upset stomach, headaches from severe eye pain, necrotizing gramultous inflamation in my left eye (a rare inflamation disease caused by the auto immune disease), tumors in my left eye, double vision in some ables, triple vision in other angles, single vision looking down and very close to my body.
If I understood right, my doctor wants me to take a medication to put me in remission. However, I either get too sick or break in hives. Hence, why I asked the group what else could be available. Afterall we are treated with the same meds..... And I also said the doctor would check the list twice.
