I had a letter today from my rheumatologist. When I went to clinic back in June I saw her registrar. Not really sure what he put down. I am in the process of claiming on an ill health insurance I have. It kicks in after being off for 6 months. She has obviously had to do a report on me and says in doing so it has brought my current position to her attention. She states I may benefit from having methotrexate injections as opposed to the tablets-not sure why though. She is also asking me if I would like her to refer me to the orthopaedic surgeons about the base of my thumb. I think I will take her up on that. The letter was totally unexpected, but I am pleased she is taking note of my symptoms. I was a bit disappointed not to have seen her. Hopefully with that and the B12 injections I will feel better than I am now. Who knows, I may be back at work before i know it.
