Hi All, I'm new to this forum . Suffered from joint pain for many years , blood work normal but after a prolonged bout of feeling very unwell with fatigue and joint pain and rash have still normal blood work but positive AnA . Due to see consultant in September .
Have just had a time in hospital with pleurisy and severe asthma( first time for big attack ) . On steroids now to my delight the joint pain is going and so is the swelling in hands and feet (X-rays showed wear and tear arthritis ) .
I'm 45 ,and in England .
Not sure what the consultant will make of the steroids helping joint pain but I'm very unsure as to what they may say .My question is should I tell him that the steroids helped the joints as well as the lungs? Or will they dismiss it ?
Kind regards ,
