Where has all the strength gone ?
I just do small food shops, a big supermarket trolley is a thing of the past for me, but as I get through my small shopping list my legs get weaker and weaker until I'm almost at a standstill. I've had problems with walking right from the start of my RA, painful toes, ankles and heels and Achilles tendons have been the worst areas of my body. As a result I have damaged feet and ankles, the right foot is more distorted and more painful than the left and it points inwards like being pigeon toed. Recently, my knees have been more painful and added to the problem.
I have an appointment with my consultant next Friday 28th and I'm thinking of asking him about physio, if that would help. I'm on 22.5 mgs Methotrexate plus 50 mgs Enbrel injection weekly and perhaps the Enbrel isn't working as it should ? I thought I'd bring this up with him too. But, I would so appreciate any thoughts and bits info anyone has to offer.
I think I've accepted this dam condition of ours quite well over the past 3 years and just made the best of life whatever. But, the chair with wheels is looming larger in the distance and I'm feeling terrified. June xx
