Hi all I had my rheumy app yesterday after a major flare, as I have had to take large doses of oral steroids for two weeks just to be able to get out of bed, I failed my DAS score by half a point. The nurse was devastated for me as she could see my painful swollen feet and collar bones. My hands and wrists were just not swollen enough!! I pleaded my case of being in agony without the steroids and three DMARDS not working but no good. So have to go away and reduce steroids be in agony and report back in two weeks. It is a good job us RA people are made of strong stuff. I guess a few of you have been here.Any advice gratefully received.
Hope you are all pain free as possible.
