I am back again with more questions -sorry! A week ago, a few days after the Kenalog jag, nodules started arriving on my finger joints. This unhinged me a bit I confess! Had a bad week of thinking about how to quit it all and then my husband phoned our GP and had a long chat. After that things have become more bearable. Still no date from hospital re my first apt with consultant next month and I'm finding that, although the Kenalog seems to have stopped the stiffness and swelling (heat) my fingers and wrists are much more painful than I can cope with. I end up shaking them about in attempt to rid myself of the constant ache and sharp pains that come and go constantly. Standard killers don't appear to make much of a dent really.
Every finger now has a nodule and I find myself worrying horribly about the future when I'm put on DMARDs and all the side effects. Most of all hair loss I read about with some, MTX especially, because I've had allopecia twice, once as a child and once after third baby and fear that losing my much cherished hair will just about finish me off? Can you wonderful people help with any advice to cheer on any of these fronts I wonder? noduled and achey fingers tightly crossed!
