Hi everyone, are we all over the festive season? I am and back to normal
I am not to bad at the moment with the PMR though the RA is knocking me about a bit. The mTX does not seem to be doing what rheumy expected as cRP is still 26. When I was on higher dose pred I got it down to 14.
I reduced the pred yesterday by 1mg so now on 13mg per day. Got up this morning barely able to walk with swollen feet and painful knees and of course my hand and fingers to stiff to do anything. Not really sure if this is due to the reduction after only one day. It is probably more to do with taking my dogs a walk yesterday, I can't take together so 2 separate walks.
I have had a sore scalp for a few days which is driving me nuts but not sure what's causing it unless it's the MTX as it has made my hair thin so now on folic acid every day except the day I take the MTX and hopefully it will thicken back up.
I was hoping to go to a chemist in town today to get a hand/finger splint to help with resting my joints on my bad hand so might have to call on mummy again She is 70 this year and runs rings around me. I don't know what I would do without her.
Anyway, if anyone interested I am still doing the bags at £6 of which half is donated to PMRGCAuk.
I hope you all have a happy new year and all your hopes and dreams come true and your goals are in sight.
