I just want to ask a question.
I'm on the MXT 20mg weekly started in January and hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day added 5 weeks ago.
I've read they treat to target. I feel a lot better now apart from one thing. Stiffness in my hands and wrists.
I tried to call the Rhuematology helpline to find it's now manned by the reception staff. As I am new to this And all I wanted to know is whether the stiffness will ease off in time. The person I spoke to said she would ask a nurse to call me back but I didn't get a call. I'm not sure if I should call again or leave it a little longer or if someone on the forum is able to advise me. I know the NHS is being stretched to its limits as I work for them too and my own department has lost 1.5 staff in the last 6 months due to not being replaced living 3 whole staff to cover a large hospital.
Hope someone can help me as it's causing me problems with work as need to write quite a lot.
Thank you in advance
