Hello. Having RA ( for 7 years now).
Lots of tablets: sulfasalazine ; leflunomide; humira injection.
My main problems are my hands and wrists.
My left hand and wrist is really bad (I am left handed): I can't move my left wrist at all ( my hand stay straight and I only move my fingers) I had x Ray done and it says:
Joint space narrowing in the carpus; cartilage degeneration and secondary subluxation ( not that it means anything to me..)
I wear a wrist splint day and night.
Also I can't straighten my little finger when I bend the other fingers.
Anyway I was wondering what they can do about my wrist: bone graft, tendon repair for finger...
Every time I see my rhumatolog he gives me steroid injection in wrist and hand but it make no difference at all.
I'm sure I don't have to spend the rest of my life in a wrist splint.
Any idea what they might do? Do you have same problem?
