I have been doing relatively well since rheum added Hydroxychloroquine to my mtx, but moved house mid December and although I coped better than I thought I would I definitely have gone back a bit. I drove to my dads on Saturday, 2.5 hours and back today. I feel pretty sick, shoulders mainly, like flu, "restless arms' as I call it, and swollen hands ....is this what they expect us to see as remission? Or is it grounds to ask to increase my mtx? I don't know if I am supposed to be satisfied with pain all day every day, as long as I can walk and work? Or should I be holding out for better than this?
I have already lost a promotion I had been offered so I don't want to accept this is it if it doesn't need to be.
