Although I have had RA for 3 years it suddenly went to another level in March this year and am now on 20mg MTX and 6 tablets a day of Sulfasalazine. I am now experiencing my first flare up since March in my wrist and not quite sure whether to just self medicate with Naproxen and Tramadol and hope it passes soon , go see my doctor or contact my Rheumy nurse. What do other people do in the same circumstances?
I am going on holiday in 10 days time and want to be well for that. My last holiday in March was ruined by a massive flare up ( had to borrow a wheelchair from the hotel it was so bad ) which resulted in the change to MTX shortly after. I don't want another holiday ruined with pain especially as it is a family holiday with my grandchildren and I want to join in with their fun. Jean
