Have had the most awful few days. My legs gave way under me when I was out with my son on Monday. Was completely unable to move by Monday evening. Called RA nurse who called back within an hour and was so helpful; for the first time in four years I felt that someone was actually on my side and was going to help me. Had a Kenalog (sp?) injection appointment by 2pm and started to feel better by the evening. This morning I actually dressed myself for the first time in weeks without help, sounds so silly but it was a big deal to me RA nurse has said I can increase my MTX every week now until I'm on 20mg with a blood test every week too. I've only been logged on for one week to this site but it was reading everyone's comments that made me pick the phone up and ask for help, normally I'd of just given up an thought this is how it is for me, but I now know that's not how it should be. Tomorrow I'm going to even try an give the dog a walk; she'll think it's Christmas! So thank you every one for making me realise I do not just have to put up with things I can actually ask for help.
