I have previously posted about issues relating to treatment (or lack of) for my PsA, but am pleased to report that I finally got an appointment with the rheumatologist last week, and he agreed to put me on methotrexate. I also had both knees and ankles x-rayed there and then, which is something I had wanted for a while, although I don't yet know what the results were.
Just by chance, with just a few days notice, I also got a long awaited appointment with my dermatologist that same day, and although this was for another condition (genital lichen sclerosus) I got her to have a look at the psoriasis on my hands and feet, and she gave me treatment for that away with me - no messing about waiting for GP prescriptions.
I left hospital after quite a long day, but for once feeling really positive that some progress was finally being made.
Since then, I have been using the psoriasis treatment and it is clearing up really well. I have taken my first dose (10mg) of methotrexate today, and although I felt decidedly weird an hour or so after taking it, that now seems to have passed after a lie down in a cool room and I am just hoping that it will work for me in the long term.
So it's onwards and upwards and I'm happy to be posting something positive for a change! 😀😀😀
