During the festive season (of course!) and I’ve got a lot of swelling, pain and limited use of my right wrist/hand.
I got to my hand therapist on 8/1/19. I’ve got to love this guy - so gentle and intuitive - he was the one who packed me off to my GP when I got diagnosed last year. This time, he whips up a wrist/hand splint and suggests I ring my Rheumy, with a view to reviewing medication, as it “may not be working appropriately”
Although I have to pay for him, (in our “quasi” public health system), I am eternally grateful that I have the choice to line up, trust and freely make appointments with good people, rather than having to get a referral and wait for PH to organise it.
I’m thinking that 10mg/week of MTX is not enough (I’m at week 10). Unfortunately, ringing and speaking with Rheumy has the same hurdles as most people here
Oh well, cheers Deb
