Hi all.... need a rant!
Just back from seeing consultant. I laid it on the line with my poor painful feet ( incidentally found some very comfy Skecher shoes after becoming disillusioned with podiatry and their attempt at shoes ) he checked my joints out and announced that things are still active. I have had a steroid injection today and the mtx increased to 25mg ... to start injections instead of pills. He said that if things dont improve over time i might have to see a surgeon for my poor old feet but they wont do anything whilst the R A is active. I now gave to do the waiting game again to see if it is effective.
My main concern is work and my lifestyle. I am very active and work part time... three days a week..8 hours on my feet a day doing a job i love. Up until now i was full of resolve that this R A wouldnt get in the way of my life but it seems that i may have to curtail things a bit ..... which really really cheeses me off!
