Today I went for my 3 month visit to see my consultant, not only was she running an hour and a half late I only saw her for 10 minutes. I've had some problems with MTX so they had to stop it and then start on a lower dose again, thinking today she would suggest something else along side, she just said ' well your inflamatory markers are okay so you have no imflamation and was going to send me on my way. She did not even ask to examine me. I then showed her my hands which are really puffy and have little use of some of my fingers and thumb. She then gave me very painful steriod injections in the joints and said keep on the MTX for another 3 months and we will see what happens.I told her I was feeling really sick she than told me to increase my folic acid. I felt it was a real battle today they just don't seem to realise that we live for these appointments, to add to it she said to the nurse I am writing so fast to catch up I don't think they will understand what I am writing.
I felt so valued.
Even if no one reads this I feel better for typing it.(In pain)
