Hi everyone. Here's hoping you having a good day. I saw another senior registrar yesterday to review methotrexate dose increase. The essence of the conversation is
1 She doesn't think the methotrexate is working... Neither do I but she wants me to go back to 10mg
2she is not sure I have RA....so wants a repeat hand ultrasound which I had 2years ago
I'm not sure how I feel. Great if I haven't got RA....we would all wish it away but then why do I feel so crap and in pain. She thought because I get little swelling and nothing in blood results that means I haven't got RA...always thought it wasn't essential to have both. So a five week wait for ultrasound and then see the consultant after that. I have decided to give myself a holiday from methotrexate this week and reflect on what I want to do.
Yesterday deteriorated in the evening. I was trying contact lens for the first time . stupidly didn't try to get them out till six pm when opticians had shut. Well needless to say one got stuck which led to a restless night and an early visit to the opticians where she fished it out. Honestly feel a complete fool.... Hubby was sweet but as he doesn't think I should try lenses he wasn't best pleased. 😞
