Haven't written on the site for a while but I have been keeping up with all your news.
I recently retired and have been looking forward to being a lady of leisure even though I seem to be busier than ever.
Went to the hospital for my Rheumy appt today.My RA has been very good recently and not caused me too much discomfort.My bloods have been fine. I take mtx 10mgs by injection and Cimzia also by injection every two weeks.I do have high blood pressure and take medication for this.
If this all sounds too good to be true you're right.
During the last three months I've developed problems with my hearing.in my left ear.Went to see my GP T heres nothing obviously wrong so have an appt at the ENT dept for which I have waited six weeks , on the 31st May.
The noises in my ear have been driving me mad.My hearing is very dull and the noises vary between the noise of two trains passing each other at high speed,,pulsating heart beats and sudden loud noises.Sometimes I feel that I could just scream.
Had a chat with the Rheumy nurse. She said to contact her after I've been to ENT in case it's a side effect of the medication.I've been on Cimzia since last August.It has made such a difference to my condition.
I thought things were going too well.
Sorry to moan but thanks for reading this xxx
