I have been having some trouble with my right wrist and as previously said on here, some tingling pins & needles down little finger and palm, so was a bit concerned, and upcoming operation what with crutches for 3 months....
Had my four monthly visit with RA Specialist today, she says bloods are now normal and all looks good, I asked does that mean no more damage being done? she said well you can't say for sure, but she would'nt think so, so thats good is'nt it?
Well why am I so achy & sore shoulders knees hands? don't know? well neither does she!. Should I take anything stronger than paracetamol for pain, she would'nt advise so???
She renewed my script for Humira, twice daily plaquinil (reduced to once daily on my request), Cymbalta, folic acid & 20 mtx per week. Had a quick look at ankle to be operated on & said, well you will be walking on that ankle bone if you don't get it done (duh!)
She ushered me to the door, which hurt my wrist to open! So is it all in my head, I don't think so, she did advise me to use wrist supports, (duh again!)
Tired, ' - oh are you eating properly', - barely suppressed rage from me.!!!
Anyway, I am off the ciggies 3 weeks now, so best not go on, am very volatile at moment. I can only describe the feeling as agitated rage - could this be making pain worse, or as my better half would say ' thats the nicotine talking'
I felt better for talking to her, and met a girl in the waiting room, who seemed to be in a very bad way, and dying for a chat, she had fybromyalgia/ ME, she said she was going toask for a brain CT, as she was worried about early onset Parkinsons ' good luck with that' I thought, more likely you'll be put on a higher dose of Prozac. Poor girl was sleeping 20 hours a day, her mum having to rub diclac on her legs to get her out of bed. I felt bad for her.
I am slumping to work tomoro, probably have big fight with someone, the way I am feeling! A civil Servant nearly got decked this am. A librarian who said I owed a fee on an old reserved book withered under my steely stare ( hubs expression) no fee. Haha!
Pip pip & cheerio!
