Have just been to see my consultant and he has agreed to let me try injections for methorexate when I see the rummey nurse on 17th feb. I am hoping this will stop me being sick and feeling sick 5 days out of 7 and stop the stomach pains.
I have just had a flare up last week and no amount of pain relief was helping, so in the end went to see the doctor and he moved my steroids up to 10mg instead of 7.5mg. I was hoping he was going to up them to 30mg, but he seemed like he did not want to go against the rummey nurse. This is the first flare up since I have been on this medication, and have been on it since Oct last year. I have gone back down to 7.5mg of steroids again as it is under control once again.
My consultant seemed pleased with me as in all my blood tests are back to normal and inflation has dropped, my fingers are still swollen but am not thank goodness in lots of pain, just moderate pain.
Just wanted to share this with you all.
Hope everyone is doing ok today. take care
