  • Matt the last time I was like that my Consultant made me go in and see her so she could see what was going on. I had phoned the Rheumatoid Helpline and Dr Drever phoned me back she was so concerned. She told me to take an overnight bag just in case. She saw how bad I was and injected all my big joints with Steroids and my wrists and thumb bases, also put my Prednisolone up to 40mgs. I was then taken to the 24 hour ward and had 24 hours bed rest. I was only able to go to the loo and wasn't even allowed a shower in the morning as it was 2pm when I got my injections. After that 2 days at home bed rest and oh what a relief. So its worth the agony of getting there. I hope you managed it and have a bit of relief today. My chest infection is worse now than when I started the antibiotics on Monday. Nurse been out and took bloods, blood pressure and sputum sample today. Doc says she might have to Hospitalise me, God I hope not. That's why I am catching up on emails and Healthunlocked just in case. Take care. Cheryl
