A daft question again Sufasalazine has kicked in or at least blood tests show that. However I still have quite puffy knuckles after a working day (see pic) while all the girls help now. A few months ago I couldn't open my hands for days or even weeks, so I guess it is a progress though. Also am still fatigued and experienced a few "clear days" after months of so called brain fog but generally I am much "slower" than I was before.
All in all, there is a slight progress but still miles from normal.
Rheumy nurse told me that probably we would have to add MTX to the mix but as Sulfa has kicked in she decided to keep me on it and we just added more analgesics (paracetamol and co-codamol at bedtime).
At the moment I just feel overwhelmed and want to stop college (two weeks left but I have just no more energy to finish essays, assessments, etc.) and also starting a new job in 3 weeks.
The question is: Does it worth to ask for MTX or is it better to wait more for the Sulfa (I'm taking it for 3 months now)?
