After coming off Methotroxate a few months ago I have been very much left to get on with it by the hospital. It has gotten to the stage where I can't cope with everyday things like lifting a kettle and such like. I can't sleep because of the pain and aches. I have an appt next month to see the RA nurse but I can't wait.
So I rang the RA dept and asked to speak to a specialist nurse. Told her what was happening and said I needed some help. Said she would ring me back and didn't. I rang yesterday to be told they were making mega specialists appointment but it would not be until end of November. I am afraid I broke down and said I needed something now as I couldn't cope with the pain, not sleeping and working. Got a call yesterday afternoon saying I was going to be prescribed Prednisolone for 6 weeks until I see the Consiltant. Have started them this morning so hoping I get done relief!
