Am due to see the R nurse next week, but this last 6 weeks have been a struggle, my fingers and hands have been extremely painful and am finding it very hard to hold a knife at work or just even doing things with my hands. Have had to do a lot of cleaning and my fingers are so sore, sharp pains running through them and last night my left hand and fingers were red hot. They ache also, I have not rang up the Rumey nurse as do not know what they could say to me. Am trying to hang on until next Thursday for when the appointment is. My neck has been hurting too. I have been on MTX for 6 months, but 6 weeks ago moved from 15g to 20g injections. When I saw R nurse 6 weeks ago I was in a lot of pain and things swelling up and that is why she put me on 20gs, but things have just got so much worse. Been getting lots of headaches too for the past 10 days constant headaches. Have also been getting a lot of pain in my toes which has not happened before. Seem to have nodules on my toes as well as on my knuckles.
Thanks for listening.
Take care xxx
