Attended consultant appointment yesterday, he was very nice but clearly stated this appointment was to discuss my back. I have two degenerative discs in lower area which from time to time will cause sever pain. No need for operation thank God. He did committ to saying that my RA will or could exasperate the disc, bloody right there.
I felt annoyed with myself for not questioning him more on why the pain this time was in my hip and back but completely failed to. We talked about Physio but I rejected as historically this has made me worse also I have appointment with Rheumy multi disciplined team February 18th.
Feeling very stiff this morning in hands and feet which are my most effected areas at present, bearable pain but then I'm not doing loads at moment but back to work tomorrow after two and half months off .
