Just wanted to say that I'm unlikely to contribute over the coming few days in Xmas day because my right hand has doubled in size and left isn't much better and I have weird deep heat in all my joints. Managed to get apt to see locum GP today and want to ask them to raise MTX dosage from 7.5 to 10mgs. Is a month a normal time lapse between dose rises do you all think? Unfortunately the apt clashes with my physio apt but thought see a doc my priority and my GP is off again so don't know if he's had the rheumy letter yet with all the hospital typing delays etc so might not be able to raise my dose until it's arrived or until my own GP is back. But I'm getting kind of desperate for something to work as hands are fairly crucial to everyday life!
Failing all else I've got Prednisolone in cupboard but as you may recall it gives my awful mood swings and I'm already teetering a bit now so don't want to be hitting rock bottom on Xmas day!
Anyway this has taken an age to type so just wanted to say Happy Christmas to one and all! Tilda xxx
