Thankfully, my GP as promised got me pain free enough so I can get to see my family. Earlier in the year I was in soooo much pain with RA and a prolapsed disc amongst other things. The specialist gave me an epidural for my back and my GP gave me steroids for 4 weeks along with other pain control medications and last evening he gave me a booster steroid injection which should last 6 weeks. When I come back I will see my Rhumey nurse as I had to come off the anti-tnf injections due to a cyst I have had for over 12 yrs, and in the last 6 months has more than doubled in size. It is good that they are being cautious and asked me to stop the anti-tnf injections until I speak with my consultant.
Anyway, I am not worrying about it, I am happy, pain free and looking forward to spending time with my family. Take care everyone and lets hope the sunshine here will help everyone feel much better. See you when I get back. xx
