Hi Melissa,


I hope the Rheumy gets back to you soon. You could always go and have a blood count done at your GP's couldn't you?

Personally I think it's a bit premature to be thinking it might be the Imuran, it could be that, but many things are possible with those symptoms. You won't know until you have a blood count done.

It's also not uncommon to have a few side effects for the first couple of weeks of treatment until your body gets used to it, so bear that in mind :hug:

Fingers crossed there is some other explanation for it.

:hug:

love
Lily

Hi Melissa, well it doesn't sound like your Rheumy is going to be much help then :( :rolleyes: I would go and get a blood count and liver function test done with your GP and if there's a problem then it could be the Imuran. Normally we are closely monitored and bloods done at least every month when we first start out on it. I think at first I had one done after two weeks, it was ok so we moved onto monthly checks. I'm still on monthly checks after 5 years :hehe:that's probably a bit of overkill, but at least they are being thorough.



hugs
Lily
