Hi, hope everyone has had the best Christmas possible and / or is relieved it's all over! I have had a whale of a time on the whole though a fair old part of it was spent in the kitchen in near-slavery conditions. Why did I allow myself to be such a martyr? Well, I had it in me to break free but was amazed I could stand the pace! Yeah, up earlier than anyone else most days, cooking for England but marching along the beach too keeping up with the youngsters & staying up playing Trivial Pursuit etc. Also drank more alchol than I should, quite a lot more so dreading blood test, but it's done now. So anyway, obviously mtx or something is working vry well & when I see my rheumy I'll be asking about perhaps reducing the dose or something.
So I'm another mtx convert / success story but to get to the question - I can't actually move just now. It's the back or more likely the muscles between the ribs on one side of my back. Almost any movement and breathing out hurts. I think I've pulled a muscle and I have had something similar long before RA. And yes, will go to doc. But might it be RA related? Just checking!
Happy New Year from Luce x
