Hi all, I haven't been on here for sometime, but wondered if anyone has some suggestions as to what to ask GP when he calls me later for a telephone consultation.
I have osteo in my hands and feet, but due to me being unable to take or tolerate strong pain meds due to other meds and asthma, I am not sure what can be done. The pain and swelling in my hands is very painful, to the extent that the pain is making me nauseous. I have continual pain in my fingers and occasionally very sharp stabbing pain too.
I was wondering if I could get steroid injections in my fingers (would they inject all of them at the same time?). My Rheumy has now left my local hospital and I have been transferred to another one and that appointment isn't until 19th September, don't think I can wait that long before anything is done.
