Back in June with my 1st rheumy app all the bloods said something was wrong & had some sausage fingers but no pain(felt bruised )Consultant said back then,I could start Hydroxy if I wanted!!!! Off to the docs,he said the same So I made the decision to start on it. Two weeks later letter from consultant telling me not to start Hydroxy.(because I only have one good eye)it affects your eyes.
So I have suffered all summer only meds taken are naproxen (not done anything for me)
2nd app yesterday with hands like boxing gloves(her words)& so painfull & so
stiff & so tired ........you all know what I mean...tells me I was seen too soon,not showing enough signs.
The good news(if you can call it that)I now have been diagnosed with Psoriatic Artritis..
start on Methotrexate 15mg with all the extras(folic acid,blood tests,flu jab,pneumococcal jab)So I am glad I will start to get some relief but also very hesitant with this drug.
The consultant was starting to explain the ups & downs with this med when I told her I have been on this site since June & have learnt a lot .She said there's no point me being on here as its for RA not PSa A .
I must say I do sort of enjoy the conversations on here...I do hope I'm not an intruder lol.
I did google other sites but they dont seem as interesting as this one (please can I stay) Anne xx
P.S....its my birthday on saturday,so putting all this at the back of my mind till Monday's App with Doc and I'm going to have a very good night with family & friends drinking & dancing @ The Soul Suite (love Motown) xx
