I had an ongoing attack for around 5 months and by the time i saw my Rheumatologist 4 weeks ago... my symptoms were easing.
I had blood tests which showed a RF of 25.
He gave me two shots of depomedrone in the knee snd and hip.
My xrays of knee, hands, feet showed no erosion ( am assuming that means damage) but not a surprise as my pain has been in back, collarbone, arms and legs
My left lower lung is has a minor atelactasis.
He was puzzled as to why my pain has been asymmetric in pattern not following a more common route.
Im more concerned about my lung and the impact any meds will have on it. Arr there any meds out there that dont have an impact on the respiratory system.
Whilst have had no pain since the injection am feeling more weak generally - lethargic and now I need to see what I can do about my lung.
Anyone else had similar experiences
