Had my rheumy appt last week and asked how I was getting on, I advised the methorexate is helping slightly, but the sulphasalazine not and am taking steroids since beg of Jan coz of a flare, he wanted to refer me to pain management and I said NO, im not talking about how to manage pain when im on co-codamol, tramadol and now morphine! I manage my medication well but the pain is the problem........................ I was soooooo mad, I asked for biologics and he said how do you know about those to which I replied coz I research, anyway, he had a quick word with the top doc and said i need to do your bloods, did a disease activity score on my upper body (which he wrote 28) then handed the forms to me and basically sent me out the door........................ I had to have a few days to recover and ponder what to do next. I have rung the rheumy nurse who informed me last week before my visit that my recent spine x ray is showing wear and tear, she will ring me this week.
IM SO SORRY TO MOAN
