Saw my rheumatologist a couple of days ago. He says I'm doing quite well. The swelling has gone down in my hands and feet and I'm starting to see my viens again.
Over the last couple of weeks, I seem to get a thrill out of taking off my socks just to look at my viens and the bones starting to show in my feet. I have to admit I do this at least 5 times a day :)...Strange what make me happy now eh?
When my doctor asked me how I felt, I answered "so much better!" Then I told him that somedays I will get "break through" pain in my hips or in my knees. Eventhough 200mg of naproxen seems to help with this new pain, my fear is that the disease is still active. I never had pain or swelling in my knees before.
My question to you all is can this disease be controlled in one area of my body by drugs, while it attacks another area covertly?
Thanks for reading and I hope you are all pain free.
