I have osteo arthritis in hands, feet and knees, I am unable to tolerate strong pain killers, even co codamol 15/500 make me ill. I am unable to take anti inflammatories because of acid reflux and asthma and high blood pressure.
I have a telephone consultation with my GP today and I am not sure what to ask for, I was wondering if I could have steroid injections into my fingers,(all of them at the same time)? as they are all so painful that it is making me feel nauseous and I can't do much with them.
My next appointment with the rheumatologist isn't until the 19th September, I'm not sure I could last until then without something to help with the pain.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
