Hi all, hope you are all doing good and pain free but I bet that's asking to much.
I have not blogged in a while as have been in a constant flare and still am.
I got worse last Thurs and ended up at doc's. He did urgent bloods and made me go back the next day. He though I would be sent in to hospital. The reason he did was that he thought the MTX was affecting my kidneys hence the urgent bloods. As it turned out my kidneys were fine but my CRP had gone up from 32 2 weeks previously to 49. The doc increased my pred til I see rheumy nurse in 3 weeks time. Luckily I managed to get an earlier appointment for next Tues so 8 days and counting.
I thought the pain was bad enough when diagnosed but boy last week went to a whole new level and not one I want to visit again any time soon.
Si I am currently on 20 mg pred, 20mg MTX and 400mg hydroxychloroquine and still I flare.
The fatigue is also quite bad at the moment.
So feeling better than i did a couple of days ago but not great. Damn these illnesses and damn these steroids.............sorry needed to let off steam a little lol.
Keep smiling, cos if you don't you will cry as I did at 2.30am last thursday all over hubby's pj's as I had to wake him up to get me out of bed for the loo.
We have been wed for over 31yrs now and I told him he wed me for better or worse. So he has had 31yrs of the better bit now he has the worse bit lol
Take care all
