Hi everyone I hope this finds you all all as good as can be.just to update you I've just had my 6week phone consultation with rheumo nurse,she was just over a week late,as I started week 8 of mtx Monday,but she apologised and here's what she said.my last 3blood test results were very good,no worries at all,esr from week 2 was 28 and week 6 it was down to 19.she said this is what they were hoping for and mtx seems to be working well.my liver kidneys and blood count are all fine which is very reassuring,she asked if I was feeling much better,I said yes better but not pain free,still painful in shoulders especially right one,and fingers stiff in mornings,my knee is less stiff defintly and ankles very much better,still have pain under feet if walk barefoot but ok in my hotter s lol !! I thought I would be seeing my consultant dec 6th but she tells me I am seeing her,which I don't mind,were going to see how I am then and I wud have had another blood test by then and if still feel some pain she's going to up the mtx a tiny bit,as she wants me to feel no pain?she was so lovely and reassuring and she said I am defintly on the right tracks.she aims to get my esr under 10 ,but 19 is good and shows her its working ..well there you go you're all updated lol !! I now am going to do my Asda shop but its so cold out there I could easily stay home.lots of love and hugs to u all Michelle xx
