Hi looking for some sensible non emotional advice!! I'm in Humira, metho recently stopped, and have felt poorly since last sept. Three consultant appointments later with different opinions sent for ultra sound scan ( hands) but told that is was a turn up and they scan worst joint situation. My hands are up and down like a yo yo depending on what I do - very reactive. My shoulders often give me prolonged pain and I currently have limited movement in my left shoulder. Anyway, scan today sore thumbs- other than that hands a bit puffy and shouldering pain- frozen of sorts. Scan involved my knuckles in my hand being looked at and my thumb on one hand. He only did this when I said it hurts here!!I also mentioned my shoulder is the sorest at this moment and was ignored for a second time!!He said borderline inflammation- ok you medication is working.i was unable to speak as this is the worst I have felt in 14 years so I just left, sat in car as the tears came tumbling down again! Not sure what I was expecting but where is this pain coming from then? Are my joints damaged? I phoned my rhuemy nurse to say I am feelin very sore and that he only scanned my hands and I am a bit confused I'm now waiting on a call back. This, as I say has been going on since sept and due to a mess up with my appointments I have been waiting since feb for this scan- just feel deflated and don't feel too assertive about getting how I am feeling across to yet another consultant at the end of June, which seems a long way away too. Any advice most welcom as ever! X
