So pleased to get a letter this morning and they have moved my rheumy appointment forward to this wednesday thank goodness.
I have been off metx from mid July with no replacement dmard - one steroid injection that set off an infection and painkillers that have done little. I took Mand's advice went and sought help from GP - the stiff upper lip wobbled and i betrayed my stoic disposition (not) and showed my exasperation and weariness (getting hard time from line manager) so could not take off work and wallow a bit.
Anyway, my GP got on the phone to the rheumy's secretary and got my appointment brought forward 6 weeks, thus the letter this morning. Such a good GP.
But i see i am not alone, quite a few of you seem to be suffering similarily whether you be on medication or not.
I also have that horrible throat thing again - had it just before my diagnosis - something stuck in my throat feeling and like the beginnings of a sore throat. Then i go hoarse - apparently it has to do with the muscle in my throat but it is really unnerving.
Roll on wednesday, hope they throw in a steroid as well.
