Thanks Quincy, I will ditch the Echinachea for now and start taking the Codeine, I was hoping to not need it 'cos it makes me constipated etc but I guess I need to give in!
Regarding the Predsol... normally I use these but I live in the UK and they have stopped manufacturing them for a year now so have been using the pred enema instead, these don't seem to work as well for me, I don't know why?
Can you think of any reason why I am getting these small itchy spots on my legs? They are driving me crazy. They appear and itch like mad for a few hours and have a white head on them, and then they stop itching and there's just a red dot left. I usually seem to get them them on my hands during a flare but this time all on my legs.
It is 5am when I am writing this and yet again I've had no sleep. This is so frustrating as I don't feel like im flaring, ie. no bad pain or rectal bleeding, just back pain/swelling and constantly tired. Another sick day from work is looming, I have a desk job and can't sit in one position for more than 10mins as it hurts like mad, not sure they will be understanding but I really can't go in like this, the mind is always willing but the body doesn't agree!! Such a frustrating disease.
