Finally getting somewhere

Went to my rheumatologist appointment and got some good news. My vitamin d levels are up To 69 it was 15. My ESR is 1 which is brilliant in there eyes unfortunately im in the worst pain ever. I finally got some different pain relief. In the form of a quarterzone shot and naproxen tables. Got say the shot has taken 90% of the pain away. But it is only a short term fix. But for me if it last 2 weeks im down with that. They are also upping my methotrexate to 17.5 mg. So im hoping all this is going to sort me out to a pain free me. Fingers crossed
