Hi this is my first post but have been following the site for about a year now.
I ve had R A for 3 years now and generally it's is reasonably controlled with weekly Methotrexate tablets and Naproxen when needed.My blood test result are all fine and showing a low level of inflammation.
However since September I've developed synovitis in one knee and tendonitis in one hand. I understand that these conditions can be RA related. I've had 3 electronic Mega Pulse treatments on the knee and still got 3 more to go.It has helped to reduce some of the swelling but still a way to go so I'm desperately hoping this is going to work.If it doesn't there is a suggestion I have a steroid injection.I was wondering if anyone else has had experience of Mega Pulse treatment and also any comments /advice on steroid injections in the knee. I ll try anything really but a bit anxious. Also what treatments have people tried for tendonitis in the hand other than ice packs, compression gloves and anti inflammatories. I stick to a low gluten,lactose,nightshade family and caffeine diet . Many thanks and hope your all having a good day.
