I have unfortunately been seen by three different consultants over the last six months. First appointment- very little inflammation visible- methotrexate re introduced to my Humira. Second appointment- Visible inflammation- steroid injection given. Third appointment- within 4 weeks of having steroid - no visible inflammation- methotrexate stopped and awaiting a scan. Within minutes of using my hands for gentle every day activities they swell up but they will go down if rested , particularly during the day. I have been taking photographs morning and night and with the exception of one day they all show inflammation.I have an appointment for a scan and to see my nurse in two weeks time. How many photographs should I take in? I have them on my ipad but I am building up quite a collection!!!!!! Do you think I should have them all available for perusal or should I just print off a selection of my greatest hits? Any hints appreciated as even taking the photographs is quite bold for me. Fed up of being passive and in pain, worked out you get nowhere and unless you speak up. Thanks very much as ever for you advice xx
