Well, it just keeps getting better and better. NOT!
Went for a regular checkup yesterday and told her that I really don't feel anybetter. I'm having problems sleeping, anxiety is getting worse, crying at the drop of a hat and I keep getting constant sore throats, my lymph nodes in different areas of the body keep swelling and I just hurt all over all the time and chronic fatigue that has not gone away even with a blood transfusion back at the first of Feb.
I am on a duragesic pain patch, 25 mcg, 72 hour. But was taken off my generic ambien and my hydrocodone for breakthrough pain. No other meds.
So she gave me the Trazodone and Leflunomide. She will not prescribe Plaquenil because too many of her patients have had too many eye problems because of it.
Can any1 explain to me why she put me on a med for RA? She says I don't have it but I do have Systemic Lupus, Fibro and Connective Tissue Disease.
Oh and on top of that she said I am borderline diabetic now on top of everything else. So far no meds but she did tell me I needed to change my diet and she will retest me in 6 months and if it hasn't gone down significantly by then she will put me on meds for that.
For those of you on this stuff, how well did it help?
