Hi all, not posted for sometime, been poorly with lungs and things. I have been in contact with my help line as suggested by my GP as to what can be prescribed for my very swollen feet, hands and fingers (Osteoarthritis ), my GP won't prescribe anti inflammatories due to my asthma and acid reflux and inflammatory arthritis, also don't tolerate strong pain meds. Take steroids for lungs, but they do nothing for the joint pains.
Found out from help line nurse that the consultant I was seeing is no longer at the hospital and I have been transferred to another one, who is trying to treat me via emails with the nurses rather than make an appointment to see me. Yesterday the help line phoned and said he suggested I go back to my GP and get treated for my fibromyalgia. I have have had Fibro for over 13 years and know that this flare has nothing to do with Fibro. The nurse said she would email consultant again and get back to me. Heard nothing as of yet.
Sorry for the long post, but had to vent somewhere.
