Been on this RA journey for 3 years & was doing really well with diet/lifestyle changes (been vegan/veggie now AIP) got off predisonal & hydroxychloroquine & down to 10 mg MTX & signed off in remission September this year..yea!!.. right? However since off the HDC, September, started having gradual to regular flares, then had low platelets on last bloods n told to stop the MTX for two weeks.
Back on the MTX (only been two weeks) after more bloods showed everything was ok ...but in bits..RA super active & mobile, so hitting feet, Knees & Hands -
My hands are the issue, the tendons contract in the night when I sleep & I cannot open mine fingers in the morning..doesn't feel like normal stiffness, cannot open them for the whole day & now having to sleep in splints..which really painful
Does anyone have tips, RA hacks, experience in this? Open to any advice Thanks
