I have undifferentiated connective tissue disease and not Lupus so I hope its ok to post on here.
I've been having trouble with my ankles for a couple of years even when everything else is OK with no hint of a flare. I had a steroid injection once which was helpful for swelling but the feeling of bone grating on bone and stiffness and tendon inflammation continue. I am wondering if I may have spurs and if an arthroscapy might be helpful. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this and if it was useful, and also how I might go about asking for it. I've no idea when I'll next see my rheumy - certainly not in the next 3 months. Do you think I could ask my GP and cut out the rheumy?
Thanks for reading.
