So, went to see my consultant on Monday as really been struggling recently. My wrists have been a massive problem and are now restricting me at work. Have been sent to occupational health who are now restricting what kind of work I am allowed to do.
Anyway, have finally agreed to take methotrexate which I will hopefully start next week. Have been lucky enough to avoid taking it up until now, but feel that its time to more forward. Now just have to hope that it makes a difference!! Have also been offered a steroid injection into my right wrist, but am not quite brave enough to go through with it yet - being a bit of a wimp if I am honest!!!!
On a more worrying note, have just heard from my closest friend who had an ortho appointment today. She has developed a number of swollen areas on her feet which her GP has been putting down to osteoarthritis. The specialist she saw today however feels it is more likely to be RA. Am very worried for her, she is only 32, has two young children and i just don't want her to go through all of the crap that comes with RA. Am keeping everything crossed that they have got it wrong.
Lastly, am having a real problem putting a photo on my profile, any handy hints from anyone?
