Morning all,i had a really bad day yesterday thanks to the pneumonia i am no where near to being well from it. Anyway the reason for my post was seeing the rheumy nurse and everyone wondered why i was there as i looked so ill and i felt it to be honest. Anyway rheumy appt. she was not going to give me the injections while i am this ill. We did talk about changing the MTX as i have been off it a lot due to chest infections.I suggested it as i felt it was about time for a change. She will be thinking about it until i go to see her in three weeks time. Someone on here mentioned latent TB and i mentioned it to her and she said you were tested for it before you were given Cimizia so that one was sorted. I couldn't take that for long because of chest infections. SO that is how it has been left until i go back in three weeks time.
By the time i got the chest x-ray done and got home i was so exhausted and felt so ill,so i got undressed and went to bed. I stayed there and by the end of the day i felt brighter. This pneumonia is going to take its time to go and i think if i am better from it by Christmas i am going to be lucky. Nurse did mention i might have to go and get my breathing tested to see how it is. So thats where i am now and i will continue to recover from this pneumonia and keep resting and not doing anything, yes i know you have all heard that before as you know me so well,but i can promise this is one lesson i am going to learn as i don't want to feel this ill again.xxxxxx
