Finally after about 18 months I recieved my first prescription for MTX and folic acid. Unfortunately I can't pick it up until tomorrow. Now I have to decide the best day for me to take it! Anyone have any suggestions? I know we are all different but any idea what I can expect, if anything? I have 7.5 mg to take plus folic acid the day after.
It's strange that I have been coping well with the diagnosis and it is only now the treatment is due to start that I am starting to worry about whats next!
I visited another specialist last week about the lump on my foot, surprise, surprise he had a different view to everyone else so far, he thinks it is capsulitis rather than a nodule (I know I was none the wiser for that either). However the Rheumy at Hillingdon has suggested a guided ultrasound injection of steroids. Just have to wait and wait for an appointment, some things never change.
Does anyone know if there is a Hillingdon group for us long suffering RA'ers?
I have also started to like the lump in my foot (not the pain it causes but the fact it is there) as, without it, I would never have been diagnosed so early with RA as I thought all the aches and pains I had were just a part of getting old. Now looking forward to being my cheeky, frisky, attitude of 20 year old (and the brain my OH suggests!) happy go lucky, retired and ever improving golfer. The last one is a bit of wishful thinking but we will see.
Have the best day you possibly can everyone. Catch up soon.
