I saw rheum last week who couldn't have been more disinterested in my nerve pain. I'm disappointed as she's normally a good listener. She was more interested in my bloods and puffy knees. My CRP is raised, so she bumped up my MTX and sent me on my way. In a way, I can cope with the RA as I'm used to it but the nerve pain is making me distressed.
My lovely GP did refer me to a pain clinic but it's nearly 4 months on and no sign of an appointment. My feet burn all night long or I get pins and needles. When I wake up, they're numb. During the day, I keep getting a tingly sensation along the inside of my calves and on the bottom of my foot, an irritating sensation that there is something in my sock or shoe. Aaaaaah! Can I scream and cry and wail and be self-pitying? I promise I'll pull myself together in the next 10 minutes as my lunch break finishes!
