Just when I was getting to grips with the sickness and fatigue, yesterday a mouth ulcer appeared- cannot remember the last time I had one! And then this morning, discovered that little ulcer had felt lonely and now appear to have a large family of them inside my cheek and the pain is horrendous. Talking and eating hurts so very much and so on way home from work dived into, well as much as any of us with RA can dive into a chemist, more like, hauled myself out of the car, struggled with the key in my hand then hobbled in- but diving in sounds so much better, anyway.......bought some kind of ulcer gel, back to car, managed to get the top off, gel poured onto my fingers......way too much and I sat here in the car, finger in mouth not caring who saw me and the relief felt good.
Despite that they are still so painful and have actually taken painkillers to help while I planned my next move as bedtime approached
Lightbulb, if this is a side effect surely this site will have a question or blog...........hey presto...so many ideas
So now tucked up in bed, bathed my mouth with Cordysol, for which I am so grateful to my son for buying for himself and not using, raked through the medicine drawer and there was the Vit C- none of your namby pamby 500mg, no not for me, straight or the big guns, 1000 mgs x 2! That will get rid of the little suckers.....so as the rest of my body begins the painful night I am so hoping the ulcers have found my mouth is a fairly unpleasant place to be
Guess what I really want to say as well is thank you for blogs and questions- and all the suggestions I found to get rid of these. Thank you to all of you for making this site a valuable resource for sufferers and family- take care, will update tomorrow when I shall expect a full recovery
