Hi everyone. I've had my results back. Hip okay but lower spine thinning, so I'm seeing my gp on 8th March to discuss alendronic acid. I've made an appt at my dentist to make sure my teeth, gums and jaw are all okay as I've read some horror stories about aa.
I've also been reassessed by the rheumy dept with a view of trying etanercept, but I only scored 4.66, not the 5.1 minimum. Having said that the nurse thought my rheumy may put me on it as the score should take into account the 10mg of prednisolone I'm on daily. If not I'll have to reduce it and then be reassessed (I have mega problems reducing - dreadful flares, the shakes etc) but if it means eventually getting a drug that really works then that's fine by me
