From what I can see Inflammatory Arthritis is an umbrella term, and can cover several diseases, so I'm non the wiser really. My Rheumatologist came to this diagnosis after my ultrasound highlighted inflammation in both my hands and wrists. She also said I have some ana in my blood, but could not sure what is triggering the inflammation. I've been put on Sulfasalazine 500mg to be increasing to 2000mg per day over the next six weeks. I also have to have 2 more blood tests every until I go back to clinic in 6 weeks. I have pain in most of my joints everyday and also taken Naproxen 1000mg a day, and Amitriptyline 25mg once a day and 1000mg co-codamol as when required.
She said I'll be seeing a lot more of her now and that I will be seeing a Nurse in clinic regularly. Has anyone else been given this diagnosis?
