Feeling very sore today and have no go in me, just hope this isn't another flare starting. I have a particularly painful knee and am finding it really difficult to lift my leg to get in and out of the car, over the doorstep etc. although it doesn't appear any more swollen than usual, and it isn't particularly warm, which can indicate inflammation, it really hurts if I try to bend my leg. My leg feels really heavy and tight. I spoke to my rheumy nurse about two weeks ago as more joints are becoming painful and I now have a hard lump in my wrist near where the carpal tunnel is, and that area is very sore, and feels sort of bruised, I have had carpal tunnel surgery on both wrists several years ago. She said to carry on with gentle exercise and when I see her in another 4 weeks she may add in another drug, I am currently on Sulfasalazine but am not tolerating it very well and have had to reduce back down to 4 tablets per day, she said it doesn't seem to be controlling me very well either. Not sure if I should wait and see how I feel over the next few days and maybe see the Doctor as 4 weeks is a long time to wait feeling like this. Do you think its anything to be concerned about or just part of our RD attacking more joints.
Hope you are all free of pain and enjoying the weekend.
