Hi. I wonder if anyone knows what I should do. I have been diagnosed with R A for two and a half years and currently on 22.5 mg methotrexate per week. My last appointment with rheumatology Was in April and I am not due to go back until April 2016 as my symptoms seem to be well controlled
However, I have had chronic back pain which has finally been diagnosed as hip bursitis in both hips causing a really chronic back spasm I have had to pay for injections in both hips to try and get rid of it and have not been referred back to rheumatology.
Can anyone tell me wether this is actually RA related and if so should I go back to rheumatology sooner to have my medication reviewed? I also have very achy elbows. In all other joints RA is well controlled. Look forward to hearing what I should do. Thanks. Sally x
