Finished my 6 weeks counselling with mind and depression has lifted , so feeling a lot better in that respect.
Went to my rhemy appointment last Wednesday and told him I am down to 10mg pred, he has now given me methotrexate to take once a week , he said it was like scaffolding when you are coming down off pred.
I asked him for a scan "what do you want a scan for" he said, I told him that some days I can hardly walk with the pain in my back and hips and I even find it hard to (so sorry to be so course) wipe my own bottom !!
He now tells me that I have osteoarthritis in my hips and back , I knew I had it in my knee but this was news to me.
And I still don't get my scan , are they really expensive or something because if I ask my doctor I get fobbed off as well I think it's a dexa scan I want, but basically I just want to know what is going on inside me.
Took my methotrexate yesterday and felt really good and I was able to walk round really good, my husband said it was like a scene from cocoon !!!!!!
Today though I am back to the normal achy me !!! But I had a really good day yesterday.
Wednesday I have to go and see asos as I am on esa so I will let you know how that goes.
