I have had swollen joints for about a month now. Sometimes they have been so swollen I look like michelin man/women and found it very difficult to write as my fingers were fat like sausages.
Most of the time I've had some kind of pain/ache ranging from dull aches to throbbing in various joints.
On my assessment I scored 5.11 das, so I have started the process for anti tnf. I've managed to stay at work, even with a change of weather head cold (just stopped mtx for a week hence the michelin style swelling). But I have been exhausted and this weather has also aggravated my ra further, although in the cool and shade I like the warm weather - well prefer it to the cold.
I managed a girly day out on saturday with a friend and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but payed for it the sunday and was almosy bed dound due to the severity of the throbbing joints. It was worth it though.
I feel drained and tired all the time and I am desparately looking forward to the half term break. I hope it gets a bit cooler and maybe I won't suffer so much.
Glad your out of hopital Sylvi.
Enjoy your retirement dinner Allanah.
