I Have sarcoidosis and was given a medication to enable me to slowly reduce the level of steroids I was taking. This new drug was supposed to be brilliant, with no side effects.
On taking the medication, I had side effects including needles and pins down my left leg. This lasted for a couple weeks, then transferred to pain over the months. The symptoms got progressively worse to such a point that pain relie fhardly helps any more.
I can't walk far, since walking further than the bathroom causes it to flare up. Even lying down doesn't give me pain relief; but it is better than standing or sitting.
I had physiotherapy, which didn't help. The doctors feel nothing is wrong with my spine, so they dismissed me. I feel the medication triggered something.
The sarcoidosis is a inflammatory disease, so I wonder if I could have inflammation around the sciatic nerve caused by the medication. y
You would think the doctor would have looked into this, but no.
I am still suffering. The pain is tremendous. Each day gets worse.
