So today I saw a Doctor in the rheumy clinic after nearly 4 months of Sulphasalazine and prednisolone . Not only has there been no improvement but I have been feeling worse as the pain is also in my feet now as well as hands shoulder knees and hip.
The Doctor said that my blood results from last week show a really high white blood count and asked if I had any infection, not that I'm aware of no sore throat, cold, pain on peeing. So he had urgent bloods taken, a urine sample, and gave me a big steroid injection in my bum.
He said that the sulph has failed and told me to go back to the hospital again tomorrow morning at 8 am. He has overbooked me in his clinic so that he can get the rheumy consultant to see me. I have to say that I was thinking of a few people on here who rarely get to see a rheumy and me seeing them twice in two days!
I was really exhausted this morning at my 10am appointment so didn't really take much in. I don't sleep well and wake up early, then it takes me hours to get moving around enough not to look like Quasimodo leaving the house....so what will I do now, get up at 5 am ...
I have no clue why he seemed so concerned. Anyone have any thoughts?
