Excuse my ignorance but the Occupational Therapist has just phoned and hopes to visit me at home next week. I was referred by the physio apparently with RA and 'acute tendonitis' in my hands/ fingers? I thought the problems were caused by inflammation to my finger joints but she said that the inflammation in joints is because of tendon trouble caused by RA? I'm confused.
Also have others here been visited at home by an OT - what should i expect?
I didn't want to put her off but my hands are feeling a lot better yesterday and today since i worked on the exercises the physio gave me and these deep ultrasonic massages she's been doing on my knuckles so I feel like a fraud now? Could she give me things to help me squeeze shampoo or toothpaste out or washing up liquid or things to open dishwasher tablets and does it matter that everything might have improved a lot by then? I'm really worried now that she'll think I'm milking it but then I didn't refer myself!?
