Hmm. ..getting frustrated with this😞
My body seems to be getting worse everyday. I'm on metoject 20mg now and have finished a course of prednisolone (again) Only when I was on 30mg, did I have any relief. When it went to 20, 15, 10 and 5 (a week on each) all the pain and swelling is back with a vengeance. My ankles are so swollen and sore now, they're affecting my walking, along with knees and hips. My shoulder, elbows and hands (along with my fingers) are so sore and swollen that it affects my every action, including sleeping. I've managed to get an early appt with my rheumy tomorrow. What will happen I wonder? Surely they can't put me on even more steroids - had more than my quota since January. I suppose they could up my mtx to 25mg- but it's not worked so far. I'm worried about some of the side effects of the other dmards - especially hydro...as my partner only has sight in one eye so I need to keep mine! Can I refuse any dmards and still continue along the path? I'm also on iron pills now which isn't pleasant 😫 Also I've got a swollen stomach along with weight gain and moon face .
Any advise before tomorrow would be appreciated - thanks peeps😊
