Hello, I am very new to this, only getting a diagnosis a couple of weeks ago. I saw a consultant and she gave me an injection of 120mg depo medrone and I have just received a letter for a appointment with the specialist nurse in about 3 wks. But my knee is still swollen and stiff, my ankle/foot hurts to walk and my wrist still hurts, let alone the other little aches and pains. Should that injection have helped more? I feel really down as I haven't told many people as I don't want my work to know (I'm a pe teacher). But am finding it hard to hide my limp and the complete look of dread I have on my face when I know I've got to run round the track or demonstrate the high jump! Any suggestions, advice or funny stories to get me through?
