Hello everyone, I had my routine 6 month review with Rhumy the other day, waiting for appointment for OT, and also podiatrist. Dr said I was also to start taking Sulphasalazine on top of 20mg MTRX to as I am still getting flares a few times a month, sometimes last a few days, sometimes last a week. Last time I was here I was saying how my last DLA claim was refused. I will try again, I think may be better when have been to see OT though. Like others have said here before, when I have good days i feel i should not try to claim, but when i get the bad days I feel so low and have in my head I should go ahead. I work full time (desk job), drive to work, go to gym a couple of times a week when up to it and although i manage most tasks myself, my biggest problem during a flare is my hands and feet. I can walk, but with pain and slowly, so should i really be applying?? I'm not sure what level to qualify. Any suggestions please. Oh, and Dr told me would be getting plints for hands, hope they will help during the night as I have been waking in pain at times. Hope you are all keeping well. Deb x
