NRAS

Update

For those of you that have been following my recent posts you may remember that I had an appointment yesterday with my rheamy nurse & about my bad knee.

The nurse I was seen by was really lovely and says my knee pain isn't to do with the RA but its a mechanical problem (wear & tear). Luckily I had an appointment with GP this morning who has referred me for a scan of knee. Until the course of my knee pain is found my GP wants me to stay off work so I have a sick note for a month.

I'm glad they are keeping an eye on you. Good luck with the scan.

Good luck. I am in a similar situation. My physio thinks mine is OA in the knee. Does it feel like it clicks then gives a sharp pain. Also swelling with pain on resting and during the night.

Hope you get your scan soon. Have a good rest and don't worry about work. I was also given a note for 4 weeks to start with he said yesterday.

Hi moomie

Sorry to hear your in a similar position. The pain is just like a bad achey pain & its there all the time, every so often I get a sharp twinge pain in the knee just by sitting with my feet up. I don't have any swelling on the knee.

Hi Peecue

Thankyou, I have more support from GP,family & a very close friend of mine but don't seem to be getting the support from work as received a letter from work wanting me to sign a piece of paper so they can get a medical report from GP. Not a chance of me doing that as my GP won't be able to tell them anymore than what I've told them.

Sometmes the Occupational Health people wnt to make decisions about your abiliy to work. I unfortunately became ill then to top it all ha more problems that ended up with me having blood clot on my lung with the redult I wasn't allowed t go back to wo wo they retired me through ill health. They worked I out that I had sufficient time to get my pension and I was able to leave work. It's not altogether desirabl but meant that I had had sum of money supporting me
