  • Hello BOB here,

  • hi bob i am on metho and full whack sulpha tramadol when needed hope this helps

  • Hi, I am so lucky with my GP. I go each Sat to see him, a month ago I went and was in terrible pain, I was crying like yourself. He have me a prescription to get on that day and told me to,come back the next day (Sunday) he then gave me the steroid injection. I really am very lucky because that pain is absolutely awful so i am sorry for you...I hope you have some respite soon..take care..Maryx

  • ty truly hope so friday tyxxxx

  • I hope that you soon have some relief, I had a double steroid injection last Friday and it's starting to ease things a bit now. It's a shame that the hospital weren't able to co-ordinate your appts into one - it's normally the same nurses doing both things!

    Gentle hugs,

  • no blood dept is seperate from rheumy dept which normally aint a prob but feel so ruff hey ho on we go lol ty

  • Well just think by the weekend, new woman ! Lol but I do really hope so for you , mine kick In quickly xx

  • Hi

    Hope you get some relief soon, I have been there recently. My rheumy team are really good and will offer the steroid injection on a regular basis. It seems very harsh to make you wait so long .If the Dmards are not controlling your RA have the biologics been discussed.I got the go ahead today for the biologics after 2 years of my RA responding to the methotrexate and sulpha.

    wishing you luck.
