I mentioned my concern about recent research published about Diclofenic at my last RA clinic appointment about 5 weeks ago and it was agreed that I would gradually reduce the dose over 4 weeks and now I've been off them for a week completely. Now I'm having new, sharp stabbing pains in my ankles and wrists...the first since the RA was brought under control last summer. I've never had a flare since then and hoped that was it under control (denial, I know). Has anyone else stoppedDiclofenic and if so, how did you get on and is there an alternative as I'm getting worried that a flare is heading my way! Going on holiday on Friday so thinking about going back on them until I get back. Clinic seemed to be leaving it up to me wither to take them or not.
I'm obviously not looking for medical advice...just personal opinions and experiences to help me decide. I'll call the clinic tomorrow but I think they'll tell me to do what I think best?
