Hiya everyone. Hope this post finds you having a good start to 2015.
So, I've been on methotrexate 4 doses now and the steroid injection has run out and I'm taking Napraxen twice a day with top ups of solpadine. I currently on holiday in sunny Spain visiting my dad with my husband, my sister and her child. I'm really struggling with the pain and I'm terrified how much pain I can and could be in and the fact that the pain is settling in my right knee, left wrist and fingers. I'm terrified of my husband going back to work after the holiday. I couldn't walk yesterday and my right knee swelled up and couldn't lift the children today due to pain in my wrist. I've been, and my family too, surprised how quickly the RA seems to be advancing. My HV is looking into referring me to Homestart and I've posted on my local FB network for help and childcare.co.uk. Money is tight (can't return to work as my wage as a veterinary nurse doesn't cover childcare) so just wondering how everyone else copes? My twins are almost 2 (25th of this month). Tips please. Thankyou x
