Just looking for advice from people who may have had this done.
I have been sticking my head in the sand hoping the pain will get better since August and now it’s so bad I can’t lie on my side at all and can only get moments of sleep if I put freeze packs on my hips. Hips are on fire and Pain is driving me slightly crazy!! As well as other symptoms of RA life is grinding to a snail pace.
Finally bitten the bullet and have private Rheumatologist appointment on Thursday, my GP thinks he will want to inject them. My physio insists it must be guided with ultrasound so my tendons are not damaged.
My NHS team (see someone different every time) have been totally unsupportive. Simply because my inflammatory markers for what ever reason are not raised. Therefore my pain isn’t real???
I am wondering how long after the injections will I need to rest???absolutely must get the most out of these injections. Any advice???please.
Great family pressure here which will need military manoeuvres to accommodate for me being out of action!!
Thank you any ideas gratefully received so I can arrange for the fort to be held. O M G
