I have been going along steadily with general improvements since diagnosis. I started injecting Metho about 4 weeks ago,I am on sulphasalazine, hydroxychloroquine and naproxen.
I had to have o root removed after my crown fell out of course this was not straight forward and took 2 dentists 20 mins! I had at least 8 numbing injections locally. It needs to heal before I have bridge work.
My problem is that 2 days later I had the worst pain and swelling ever ! I managed to get to see the out of hours GP this morning and she has prescribed steroids. This is the first time I have had oral steroids.
Please is there any tips when taking them?
Does anyone know if the injections the dentist gave me interfered with my condition or meds?
This is the worst pain I have had and I am upset as I thought I was making progress ;-(
