Should I shield or not??

Edited , 4 users are following.

Hello, I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, Ive had a TIA & a history of DVT in the past. I'm on quite a few medicines including Sulfasalazine & Methotrexate for my RA. I have a malabsorption problem so am chronically anaemic & have low calcium levels.

So with all that taken in to account should I be shielding? National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society says yes, Gov't doesnt seem to think so & I'm loathe to harass my GP, Consultant or Nurse Specialist when they're all under so much pressure.
