I was beginning to think that I had imagined the problems I had since May, but no I am not going mad and having an overactive imagination. The problems seem to be coming back, I was perhaps lured into a false sense of security and maybe wishful thinking but my hands are getting painful again and are starting to swell and I am aching all over.
I have had a good 8 weeks of relative normality since the steroid jab on 5th Nov but maybe that is starting to wear off now. I am thinking of this as a blessing in some ways and you may all think I am mad but I see the Rheumy on 9th Jan and they have not seen me with the hand problems at there worst, I just had a little soreness when I had my 1st appt as my symptoms seemed to settle down for the week preceeding the appt and it may help in making a definite diagnosis and deciding on treatment plan. The other positive is that I know the steroids have worked for me as I know some of you are not fortunate for this to be the case.
I also know that I am not going mad and that the symptoms were real.
Wishing you all a very happy new year and may 2013 be a better year for you all
Thankyou also for the warm welcome I have recieved on this site and all the support you have given me.
